Mitered Quilt Borders Quilting Video

Ah, the magic of the mitered quilt border! For many of us, this one technique can take the humble quilt from “handmade” to “art” when executed correctly. But many newer quilters (and even some of the more seasoned quilters among us!) have trouble with getting those perfect miters! The subtle seam of a mitered corner creates the illusion of a continuous line around the quilt and is the epitome of beauty when it comes to quilting. Mitered corners are ideal for striped fabric borders or multiple plain borders.

  1. Is there a reason that you should not lay the border against the feed dogs. If you can, it would be easier to see the quarter inch margin at start and stop on each side.

  2. I have been looking for information on mitering multiple borders and you site keeps bringing me back to this page. I know how to make a mitered corner. I want help with mitering multiple borders.

  3. It’s funny how all the various sites do mitering differently. Some make it very complicated!

    I like your site because the mitering is simple and makes sense, so it will be easy to remember in the future.
