    Red face Binding, a little different way to sew corners.

    Seen this link on another board and watched it. I do it the same almost, do not cut the little overlap of the binding as he shows in the video, am going to try this, maybe the corners will be a little less bulky and my machine will not cause me problems.

    Wouldn't work for me, I use doubled binding. I don't like the look of sewn on binding.

    Hmm. Different indeed, plus it looks easy. I've been clipping the corners, which he definitely says not to do. Which is a holdover from all the years of clothing sewing.

    Good tip, thanks for it. Someone mentioned "double binding"---what is that?

    That method has been around for years. Kaye Wood introduced it in the 1980. However she didn't clip. I watched it and noted he didn't give any guide how to make sure you sew to the exact point at the corner. If you don't sew exactly the seam allowance then the mitre doesn't turn good.

    Thank you so much for the link. I have a magazine called "Celebrations" by Patrick Lose where he describes that technique. I could never quite figure it out. Now I see it, and it seems so simple. I will definitely try that next time! Thanks again!

    This is a great tip! I have never been totally satisfied with my quilt corners, this technique seems to be what I need.

    I learned this technique in one of Alex Andersen's books. It is so much easier than doing it the old way.

    I always knew there had to be a way of making those mitered corners look good. I can miter, not a problem, but oh boy am I ready to try this. Now I have to hurry and finish one of my many projects. Thanks so much for finding this tut.
