Default Help! Need mitered binding tutorial????

Does anyone have or know of a good mitered binding tutorial or tips? I have a book with instructions but they are not doing it for me. I usually sew to the end turn my quilt and keep going.... Help!

Make sure the quilt is squared up, and that you stop at the corner in the correct spot. If you seam allowance is 3/8", stop 3/8 from the edge. I usually mark the corner in the quilt. You can do it--if I can, you can. Just try it.

Thank you, Jan. My mitered corners are fine, but I have trouble with connecting the ends with a bias seam. I printed your directions and will use them later today.
