Welcome to my binding tutorial. If you haven't done so yet, make sure you read parts one and two before moving on to this step.
Ok, so now we have reached a corner.
Take your quilt over to the ironing board.
Take the binding strip and fold it out to the right, making a 45 degree angle like this and press:
Keeping this fold in, fold over to the left and press.
Continue sewing from the top edge of the quilt.
Carry on all the way around, repeating this method for each of the corners.
This is what the corners will look like from the front:
Once you reach the final side, stop sewing at least 12" from where you started. Don't cut off any of the binding strip yet, we will use it in the next step when we make the mitred join.
Join me next for part four - my mitred join technique.
