    Hi Nancy,

    I would suggest a look at the Missouri Quilt Company online and also search through You Tube for videos. Once you find what tools and method you'd like to try then you can search for the best price or sale. There may also be a tutorial listed here at the board.

    Have a Great Quilty Day!

    I have a miter tool, but I find it is easier to just do it without fiddling with the tool.

    I don't know about a tool, but Pittsburgpam has a great tutorial.

    The only thing I did differently on mine was to use elmers glue to hold the fabric in place after I ironed it. Then I was able to pin and sew on the pressed line. The fabric didn't shift and it came out great!
