Need some help with sewing binding. In the past, I always sewed the binding on by machine, folded back, mitred the corners and hand stitched it down. I can't figure out how to sew the mitred corners if I machine stitch it to the back. I've only done this one time and after I finished machine stitching, I hand-stitched the corners closed. If I didn't, they were "open" on the diagonal part. Is this as clear as mud?
Do you leave them open? Do you stitch and then backstitch down the diagonal? I'd appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks in advance--you guys are the greatest!!
