I thought this quilt really needed mitred corners but I have never done them on multiple borders so I made a pillow cover with two borders. The miters turned out ok but not quite perfect on the last corner.
It's a lot harder with a huge quilt and this one is already 90 inches square with one more 5 inch border to go. I got the first border done and the first corner of the second one. It's not perfect but I'm not sure I can make it any better if I try to re-do it. I don't know why the lace pattern doesn't meet quite evenly but the corner is square so it may be a trade off. Any ideas?
On looking at the corners again, I realize that the problem is with the lace pattern on the fabric, not the mitre. The curve of the pattern doesn't meet at the same part of the curve. Well, it's pretty close and I don't have the skill to make it any better.
I replied to comments for the last two posts and they all bounced back to me. This hasn't happened with regular email so I'm thinking it must be Blogger. Has anyone else on Blogger had this problem?
