Mitered Corner Borders
• Add at least twice the border width to the border lengths measured or instructed to cut. • Center and 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. • Fold and pin quilt right sides together at a 45-degree angle on one corner (Figure B). Place a straightedge along the fold and lightly mark a line across the border ends.
• Stitch along the line, backstitching to secure. Trim seam to 1/4" and press open (Figure C).
