    Double-mitered binding

    I took a class where I learned this technique. In this method you sew each corner of the binding individually. The teacher recommended that we make a small sample and mark each corner with part of the technique. That way we have something to refer to when our memory leaves us in the lurch.

    Here is the pdf with pictures.

    That looks really interesting just glancing at the pictures. I'll have to take the time to read it closely. Thanks for the info.

    I can't use adobe flash with my current antivirus but it sounds like you learned some valuable things in your class.

    Thank You for sharing! I just watched a video on binding with a tool from Creative Grids and it is the same concept. Now I don't have to buy a new tool, I can just use my ruler. Have you tried this method with any other angles?
    God gave me the gift to learn and teach. It's up to me to know which gift to use and when to use it.

    This is very interesting. I did a quilt where I would have liked the binding to change color at the corners but didn't know how to do that. This technique would have worked. Thanks!

    I have not but the gals in class discussed that they could use it for other angles. One said she used it on a hexagon which means you would have more strips to start with.

    This is also a great method if you want different fabrics for the bindings on each side.
