Finished Binding Corner

This photo shows my finished corner of the binding on the doll quilt.  Someone asked what to do with the "tail".  Fold it in so it is even with the finished edge of the beginning binding.  Finish sewing the binding in place and when you get to the end, blindstitch the folds together.  I have seen quilts from the 80's in which each of the four sides were bound separately and the corners were finished in this manner.........probably before someone printed the directions for the mitered corners we commonly use now!

  1. Thanks, Cyndi. It's hard to tell in the photo, but it doesn't look like it's mitered. I'll have to swing by and have a better look.
