I've managed to avoid the mitered corner until now. However, now I want to surround a block on point with strips. The usual method just won't look right; it must be mitered.

Can anyone guide me with tips and/or refer me to some easy instructions? Of course, any other suggestions to avoid the miter would be appreciated!

Thanks.

I am not a quilter, but made one for a new granddaughter a couple of years ago. I can't post a link because it's a PDF, but do a google search for Nancy Murty Little Blessings Andover fabrics. The PDF has excellent, easy to follow directions and my miters were perfect.

Are you working on a border or a binding? For the border, you fold the quilt on the diagonal and then stitch the border pieces together, following the same diagonal line as the quilt. For the binding, here's a tutorial: here: They're both a lot easier than you think.

Silly me, you said a block on point with strips. Where are the strips going? I'm thinking you'd use the border technique for what you want. A picture would be nice.

Wow. Knew I could count on you all!

It's a motif block I thought would look better on point (diamond shape) than square. Hope I explained that alright. So instead of strips around a regular shape singular block, it' s strips around a diamond shape.

Kind of a border around each block/diamond.

Wish I could post a pic...someday I'll figure out the technical aspect. That should be my new goal! Tired of being behind on tech.

I'll practice miter first with scraps.

Thanks so much. Wish me luck.
