    Thin border

    How do I make the thin border along the edge of a quilt? I never learned how.

        Mrs Windy: Thank you for posting the links below. My first quilt had mitered corners and I made a disaster out of them but since it's for my bed, oh well.. . . .

        Second quilt, I didn't use the mitered corners and it was easy. Now, after watching both types of videos by pennyh123, I think I'm confident enough to do either and with the new quilt frame I bought yesterday at the quilt show, I'm ready to go. . . ..well, I have to watch the video to put it together and then I'm ready to go. LOL!

            The One Jenny did is wonderful. I never got the corners right before I watched this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INh6sVKJRrA
