    This is a beautiful tutorial, but I'm afraid that step 3 and its corresponding picture are just confusing me. I'm fine up to that, but I just sort of get lost staring at that instruction and trying to figure out what it means with the picture. Would anyone be able to explain it a slightly different way?

    Sorry it's unclear.

    "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."

    The top is the sliced off edge you see in picture 2. The white line is the stitching line. The pin will keep you from stitching too far.

    If it still us unclear, this weekend I will get my DH to help me take a few more pictures or a short video. I noticed this weekend that our camera will do like a 15 second video.

    I made a baby quilt recently and, as I usually do, I self-bound it. But I looked up this tutorial because my corners don't turn out well. I gave the quilt away already, but I still have the mini-quilt I tested this on.

    The photo is a close-up scan of the four corners. I used this technique on three of the corners. On one corner, the lower left, I decided to try folding the excess fabric to one side instead of trimming it. You can see it looks a little lumpy on the left side. The first three corners look very good, the fourth looks much better than any of my past attempts, but not as good as the other three.

    Thanks, AlienQuilter for posting this.
