In this video tutorial I show you how to take the proper measurements to make your own binding for a quilt. This video covers beginner sewing & quilting techniques. I show you how I attach shorter strips of the binding fabric to make one long continuous strip, how to attach it to your quilt, mitering the corners and finishing the binding edges.
There are tons of different ways of making and attaching your binding. I do not claim this method to be the "right" way of doing binding. This is just one way that I find has been easiest for my students to learn.

a little tutorial on sewing perfect corners.
By:Rag Pets by Eerika Valkonen
She also made a video of this process, you can view it here: video! ..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIBAGY5eOFk
The best thing about making corners like this is that they're strong and durable because there's no need to clip the seam allowances, and the very tip of the corner is always nice and sharp.
