    Hi everyone,

    I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out mitered corner. Can you give me some help. I had made a picture for Christmas, very cute and had to put a straight border on it. I would appreciate a tutorial on this subject. I am a beginner and love to quilt. Thanks :?:

    I think she means mitered corners on borders, not binding. I'll see if I can find a link-I've only noticed instructions for it in magazines.

    eta: If you google "mitered borders" there are a ton of hits. I haven't ever done one so I don't know which methods are best.

    Eleanor Burns has a fabulous video on doing mitered corners.
    You don't have to pay for it. It's on youtube or facebook or
    one of those. It's easy to follow, and if you screw up, you
    can go back and look at it again.
