    I am not happy with the corners on my machined binding. Used 2 1/2 strips, and 3/8" seam for attaching binding to quilt. Also, used the Elmer Glue method to hold the strips down. The back side of the corners looks so much better than the front. Am about to put on another binding and would love to avoid hand sewing. Thanks all.

    I use Elmers to glue down the mitered corners too, before stitching them. :D:D:D

    Here is my favorite video on how to add binding by machine (including tips on how to miter the corners so they look good). The video demo is in two parts:

    Ditto from me too. I have a large border to add to a quilt that will eventually become a scout camp dormitory twin throw and because my size was too small, I am adding a large border print. However, thought mitering the corners would look better than blunting the top-bottom-sides with this border print. Thanks for the links and hints.
