Mitered Corner

I just can't seem to ever get a great mitered corner. 
My next Moda Bake Shop project has stripes for the border so in my mind the corners must be mitered.
Last night I was able to recruit some help from Kathleen, my sewing expert and look at what she did!
 
I am so thankful for her and her sewing help!

So, do you like mitered corners?
Do you miter your corners?

  1. I enjoy mitered corners. It took some patience, but once I got the hang of it, it's the only way to go.

  2. I've done a few, I love the look, so I had to figure it out :) Yours look great, all the stripes matching! Hope you have a good day :)

  3. Mine are awful. Maybe she would share secrets. I really want to make the baby quilt with self border.

  4. I dislike mitered corners. Sometimes they turn out--sometimes they don't and it is the times they don't that I dislike them.

  6. looks great! I might have done it once. I remember seeing Eleanor Burns do a mitered corner on her show once and she made it look easy!

  7. I love the look but not the execution. Mine rarely turn out totally right. If they lay flat the stripes don't meet etc

  8. I LOVE mitered corners but I don't like making them..only done them once and it was fluke that they turned out!! These are gorgeous...look at how the lines all line up!! Perfection!

  9. I am so looking forward to seeing your finished quilt! I really like the Nautical & Nice collection.
    I usually don't miter my corners, it like mitered corners a lot but typically take the easy way with straight border corners.

  10. Mitering seems so much harder! So no I don't miter!

  11. That corner is as perfect as can be! I miter some corners. I think it mostly depends on the print. If I can get away without a miter, I do. If it would flow better with, I go ahead and miter.

  15. I love the picture-frame look, especially with a stripe. I have found a formula which lets me pre-cut the miters before I sew the borders on my quilt. I spend so much time and effort on my piecing, why should a mitered border just be slapped on in the hope that it lines up? Pre-cutting it makes it "sew" easy!!

  16. Sometimes I miter, sometimes I don't... Just depends. Although I will say that if I can get around it, I do try! I love it when quilts just *scream* for cornerstones in the borders. :P

  17. I love the look of mitred corners when they're lovely and sharp. Mine are variable to say the least! I keep trying though.

  18. wow! those mitered corners are so perfect! it's so hard with striped fabrics! can't wait to see your finished quilt! I love mitered corners but haven't done that on a quilt yet.

  19. CHEERS to your good friend Kathleen!!! She did an awesome job on those mitered borders!!!

    Do I like them? I love them! Look so professional ;)

    Do I use them or make them? no. I have never tried, b/c I'm too chicken and not enough confidence in myself. :/

    can't wait to see the rest of this project over at the Moda Bake Shop soon ;) thanks for the sneak peak!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
