    Thank you! Very good tutorial! I saw one where they sewed the opposite way so there is no puckering. Does it make that much of a difference? She also did the 1/4 inch marking where not to sew the border at the corner. Just received this quilt kit last week and am anxious to get started and see how my mitering comes out.

    Jennifer I have a quetion about the frixion pen. Since it disappears with heat does it come back if the quilts are in the cold?

    I am new to quilting – my first project is a cushion cover with a fence post block and a 3 stripe border with a mitered corner (hopefully) . so i have been collecting methods . your method so far is the simplest and easiest to follow. BTW none of the other have mentioned the quarter inch at the corner of the quilt . thankyou!

    I’ve been procrastinating for 8 years with my outer striped border. I’m going to do it now. I suspect my border wasn’t fussy cut because I didn’t even know what fussy cutting was. Thanks though.

    I was able to get one end to work well, but cutting the border so one end lined up did not allow the other end to line up? What can I do differently the next time?

    This was a wonderful tutorial on mitered corners. I had never done mitered corners before and was quite scared to even start. Your directions and video gave me confidence and I am very pleased with the results. Thank you so much!

    I watched your mitered cirner tutorial yesterday and successfully completed it. I was so impressed with the end result i will make more. Thank you. It looks just as good as yours

    I'm telling you, that overhead camera showing how beautiful it comes out, makes this method SO convincing! And the lining up and multiple pinning really pays off, doesn't it? This also shows how a mitered striped border (with that pretty red narrow accent) dresses up a simple layout of blocks. Having beautiful fabric doesn't hurt either. 🙂 Very nice job, Jennifer.

    Jenn, when you stated to fussy cut the (patterned) outer border, what was your strategy to do that? Did you place the same flower in your border material at each corner, or…? Beautiful quilt! Thx!!

    I have always avoided the mitered corner until now I have a quilt made with the chocolate and Rose's fabric and a mitered corner would make the quilt but it's just sitting in my sewing box, well guess what I'm going to be doing this weekend thanks Jennifer.

    Thanks you are my favorite to watch. I love that cathedral window behind you. I may have told you I have made 3 king size. One for each of my children. I am 85 and started sewing at 15. You do great work.

    Jennifer, can you do a tutorial on how to piece together material for a backing that is larger than fabric that greater than 44". I can't always find the backings that are 108" wide
