Quilt Binding Tip: Making Perfect Corners – New Quilters

Photo of quilt with binding corner showing

One of the great frustrations you may run into when you bind your quilts is achieving a perfect mitered corner — that is, a corner with a beautiful, crisp 45-degree angle that ends in a sharp point. This video shows the clever (and easy) binding trick quilt designer Patrick Lose uses to achieve those perfect corners every time. We’re definitely going to try this on our next quilt.
