    I am having trouble figuring out which way to sew borders on. Please look at seam on right and seam on left at the side points. Can someone advise which way looks best? I have ripped out these 3 times now and probably will have to cut new ones soon. Thank for help

    I think the mitered corner looks best.

    I am not use what you are asking here. ??? How to miter the corners right? I sew the seam to a quarter inch of the ends and stop on all of the edges. Then you turn back one edge to where the ends match up and then crease (or press it) then you have a perfect miter to sew.

    It depends... are you trying to decide on which shape it will end up?
    If mitered, it will be a square or rectangle.
    If you like that angle "corner", will it be an oval?

    Could you mitre the other corners as well?

    I did a table runner with the same shape and did the corners like your second picture, I can't remember why I did it that way, but it looks OK to me.
