Join Julie for her second set of tips on binding your quilt.  This week Julie sits down at the machine and shows you how to make that perfect mitered corner with your binding.  She also shows you how to join the ends of your binding using a 45-degree angled seam.

I've seen this done a half dozen times. This demonstration made the most sense. I almost wish I hadn't just finished binding my quilt. Thank you for giving me a solution to such a long time problem.

Best tutorial ever for connecting binding with a diagonal seam! Thank you!

I've been doing my bindings like this for a while now, but yours is the best demo I've seen on how to connect the ends!! Mine get twisted sometimes and I have to "unsew" them. Your demo should eliminate my problems with this- thanks for a very clear demo!!

Thank you for your tutorial for binding. I tried it and it really works well. Thanks again. Also could you tell us where to find pattern for placemat you used in the tutorial.

I tried your technique today on a quilt I have been working on and it worked so much better than what I have been doing. Thank You so much, it took the frustration out of finishing my quilts. :lol:

Great tutorial on joining the seams. Now I understand why mine didn't come out exact. I will try to remember this the next time I have to do it. Thanks so much.

Great tips thank you Julie! Not sure about that scant 1/4" left between the 2 ends you are going to join. You could see that the resultant binding was under a little bit of tension. Perhaps just a little less space would avoid that tension.
