Sashing doesn't just happen when you win a beauty pageant (congrats, btw!). If you love to quilt, you may be doing a lot of sashing, too.
Your quilt looks perfectly fine without a border. But with a border? Masterpiece! That's definitely true when you're using a mitered border — and all you need to know to create this style of fabric frame is how to sew mitered corners.
Truth: If you quilt, you need math. Calculating yardages for borders, backs and bindings is part of the craft, whether you're making the best use of the fabric you have or deciding how much to buy.
There's nothing worse than binding your quilt and holding it up only to find that the edges of your quilt are wavy rather than hanging nice and straight. If you've had this happen to you, you're probably a) kicking yourself, and b) wondering why it happened.
Looking to add a little intrigue to that quilt? A mitered border can be a beautiful (and easy!) way to kick your top up a notch. And with border prints, it's simpler than ever! Just follow our step-by-step tutorial for a mitered border that brings out the best in your quilt.
