Mitered Cor­ner Bor­ders

Annie's Quilting for the Home - - News -

1. Add at least twice the bor­der width to the bor­der lengths mea­sured or in­structed to cut.

Ex­am­ple: Bor­der is 3" x 45". Cut bor­der (2"x 3") + 45" = bor­der length to cut or 51".

2. Find cen­ter of side bor­der length, match to cen­ter of quilt side length; pin bor­der to quilt top to se­cure. Note: Bor­der will be longer than quilt side top.

3. Sew the side bor­ders to the quilt, be­gin­ning and end­ing stitch­ing 1/4" from the quilt cor­ner and back­stitch­ing (Fig­ure A). Re­peat with the top and bot­tom bor­ders.

4. Fold and pin quilt right sides to­gether at a 45-de­gree an­gle on one cor­ner (Fig­ure B).

5. Place a straight­edge along the fold and lightly mark a line across the bor­der ends (Fig­ure C).

6. Stitch along the line, back­stitch­ing to se­cure (Fig­ure D).

7. Trim seam to 1/4" and press open (Fig­ure E).
