    Thank you, thank you so much. I know this was one my my problems not sure where to stop. This was a huge help for you.

When you sew the miter, you should stop at the same 1/4 inch mark on the inside edge. With all the pieces stopped at the 1/4 inch mark in the corner you can iron the corner nice and flat without any bulk. I'm glad you got it worked out and maybe the next one will be easier.

    I have been mitering all day. I did four blocks with mitered sashing and on the 11th one, I had a problem. I think I got sloppy. I fold the sashing together, use the 45 degree line on the ruler and line that up along the top of the sashing, then draw the line with pencil. You do have to start and stop exactly 1/4" from the edge and then on the miter. I'm glad I am done, how about you? lo
