I can do that with my mitre saw but having trouble with it on my quilts!

I get a puckered out section that I can't get to lie down.

Does anyone know of a video or a tute that shows how to do this?

vicki reno posted this yesterday in another thread.

This is an obtuse angle (greater than 90 degrees). Don't be thrown by this, the method for binding any outward angle is the same as an ordinary corner. The angle of the fold is the only difference. For the first fold, fold binding back in such a way that it becomes an extension of the next side you are going to stitch, as shown.
Pics are on the tute.

Thanks Lady!

I think I can do it now! I am making a candle mat with 8 such angles... I won't fool up everyone of them now!
