    Thanks so much AQ. I can't wait to try it!

    Great tute. I have avoided that kind of finish because it looked so difficult. thanx for making it look doable.

    hemmed quilt

    Picture 2: What it looks like after slicing off the corner. Practice on some scraps first just so you don't get nervous!

    Picture3: Fold backing fabric lining up cut edge with corner of pieced top on the fold. Place a pin in the middle. Now stitch from folded corner to the pin. Clip corner.

    Picture 4: Turn corner right side out. I just use my finger to "pop" the corner. If needed, finger press seam open.

    Picture 5: Sides folded under and pinned. Ready to be stitched down. When I do a hemmed quilt, I machine stitch down the hem. This would also look nice with a decorative stitch.

    Picture 6: This is a picture of a Log Cabin quilt I did about 5 years ago. As you can see, the seam is still holding up. And it's nice and flat - no bulk.
    can you tell me where I can get the easy rule from? great tut thanks

    I honestly don't remember where I bought that ruler. All you need is a long ruler that has a 45 degree line on it.

    A 6 1/2" square up ruler is not long enough. You need one with a nice long side for cutting off the corner. The ruler above is 6 1/2" X 13". A 6" X 24" ruler would also work if it has a 45 degree line on it.

    I'm glad everyone likes the tutorial. Once you get the hang of it, it goes really fast.

    LOVE the tute, thank you very much...I have been quilting for many years and finally got the binding the way I want it and now I can do baby quilts this way too. Thanks again and I agree the pictures are worth a thousand words and make it all seem so easy.
    Happy Quilting
