    Hey everyone! I just finished a quilt top for the Quilt For Kids Program and I'm ready to sandwich it, my question is, if I were to use the backing as the binding; meaning i would fold the edge over to the front how would i do the corners so they are nice and neat? Thanks in advance! :)

    Thank you Pam. I was wondering that myself last night. It's going to be very helpful.

    The tutorial was great. That's the way I do it when I do a self-binding, but when I do the corners, I fold the corner up and finger press it, then I cut the corner fabric off at the crease. This eliminates some of the bulk at the corner.
