Binding Odd Angles

Marci Baker of Alicia’s Attic shows very clearly how to miter quilt bindings for odd angles. She’s one of my favorite video makers! She demonstrates the techniques so clearly that I want to go make an unusually shaped quilt, just to try this out 🙂

    I am amazed with the mitred corners. I have been working on table runners & place mats, I wish I would have seen this article earlier. I have nice mitres but I had to fight with them. This I assure you I will not forget.

    thank you.

    Great video, makes it look so easy. It will help me teach others. My problem is doing an inside angle and getting the binding to look neat. Do you have a book or video that shows how to do these inside angles. Thank you so much, Joan

  36. Stephanie Webster says:

    This was so helpful as I did a table runner and was not happy with my corners. A quilt shop just said to do them like any corner. Not true. You explained it very well and it worked out perfectly when I did my own. Thanks. I need to go find your books. Stephanie

  37. Sally neckvatal says:

    This was very helpful, but what about inside non90 degree angles? I’m working on a project that has a large zigzag edge (essentially 3″ triangles). I’m going to experiment with a variation of your techniques in hopes of resolving this challenge. Thank you.
