    The Missouri Star Binding tool tute is on You Tube. Skip down to the updated one as some people had trouble understanding. I love it but it is not for the corners. It puts the binding together perfectly and at a angle like you were sewing binding together. Works everytime. Look at the tute.

    I would love to know the name of the quilt when you write a message...sorry don't know what they are called. I'd love to make one. If you can tell me where you got the pattern also or if I can have a copy.
    Thanks in advance

    I've watched a video with these same instructions as yours and still can't do it. Maybe it's the "corner to opposite corner" I don't get. I haven't mastered 45 degree seams yet. They keep coming out with one side way higher or lower than the other. I just ripped one out 4 times. Is there a secret to getting them even?

    Hope that makes sense. If not, let me know...I'll try to get more detailed. Also, I buy a large package of these clips at a discount store (K-Mart, Walmart, etc.); NOT the quilt store where they are a fortune!
    I love using these clips. I bought mine in Walmart for about $3.00 for 30 of them. My DD saw me using them the other day and reminded me of when I used to use them to make fancy barrettes for her when she was a little girl to match every outfit she had.

    I cut my binding about 21/2 or 2 1/4 depending on the batting, and then I just sew it on with my machine and hand sew the reat on. and I alsouse binding cips and I love them, they are worth the money and you do not stick your fingers. Have a wonderfull day.

    With the tool from Missouri Star you sew your binding all the way around the quilt and leave a 12 inch place on one side. You should leave 10 inches of binding on each side of this 12 inches. You cut the binding on the Left along the angle on the ruler. You take the ruler and turn it the opposite direction on the Right and cut it going the opposite way. Flip the ruler from one side to the other. The updated tute on Uptube is very clear. Scroll down to the last tute.

    I did a search for these but could not find them. Could you explain what these are like? I will try to find some.

    I've seen mentioned the youtube video about the tool from Missouri Star but not yet has anyone posted the web address. Granted I have not read all 9 pages but I've read most of the messages. Does anyone know how to find this video people are talking about? Thanks in advance!
