    Binding - inside corners?

    Needing tips for attaching binding when there are inside corners/curves.

    Was very pleased with this quilt, except for the binding where the tail of the butterfly meets the wings - please don't look too closely - I'm embarrassed LOL.

    I did use bias binding. I'm prepared to remove the stitching and fix, but hope some of you have some helpful tips on how to do inside angles.

      Did you clip the inside corner? Here's a link that may help you.

        Aha moment! No I didn't clip the inside corner. Thank you Preeti & Sharyn for the link, it explained a lot. Since my inside angle isn't 90 degrees, but closer to 45, I suspect I'll still have some bulk in those corners, but it should lay nicer than what it looks like now.

        I have several FMQ practice squares, I'll cut a few inside corners and practice before I attempt to fix the butterfly.
