    Thanks Thayer. I'm going to give it a try. I'm always trying to improve the technical quality of my stitching...aiming not so much for perfection, but more for avoiding aggravation

    The binding tool is another template that'll cut off that dog-ear and make it easy to line up strips. Of course, if you have triangles, no need to buy yet another template.

    Thanks so much for sharing and the excellent pictures (I’m a visual learner). I can’t even count the number of times I have joined my strips incorrectly. I’m looking forward to trying out this method.

    I am for sure going to try this method. I have a horrible time joining anything on a 45 angle. I just finished a quilt with 45 degree angles through out the quilt. Every one of the 15 strip x about 12 pieces each. I was ripping so much I was afraid I broke my seam ripper. LOL Instead of getting better--it got worse. I tried many methods to get these seams correct. Nothing work consistently. I'm binding a quilt soon and will give this a try. I have confidence in it.
    Thanks Thayer for posting it.

    I always use my EZ Angle for anything that is a triangle shape. I was never accurate until I made the cut first.

    This is a very good technique. I am able to eyeball it on 2.5" strips but have trouble with squares 4" or larger.
