    they used to do this all the time. a 4 poster bed would need one. just add to the sides and bottom the same size, instead of making them fill in the corner.

    Never thought of that. That sounds like a good idea

    I have seen rounded corners and I have seen split corners for poster beds. The reason my friend does the rounded corners though is because she hates to miter. She wants to put the binding on and just sew all the way around without stopping.

    The split corners are bound like a normal quilt but you've got to bind up into the split, turn a 180 and back down the split.

    On my bargello in my avatar I rounded off the bottom corners after it was quilted, then just bound it as usual with straight binding. It turned out fine . I don't like the points on the floor either.

    Just so I get this correct - you quilt your quilt, then actually cut off the corner? Kinda scary to me. Do you quilt into the corner when you know you're going to cut it off? Or if not, is there any problem with threads coming loose?
