Miter corners. Stop approximately 12” (30.48cm) from where you started. Lay both loose ends of binding flat along quilt edge. Where these two loose ends meet, fold them back on themselves and press to form a crease. Using this crease as your stitching line, sew the two open ends of the binding together right sides together. Trim seam to 1 ⁄4” (.64cm) and press open. Finish sewing binding to quilt. 10. Turn the binding to the back of quilt and hand-stitch in place.
