Mitered Quilt Facing

Mitered Quilt Facing 

Hello, everyone!


We’re thrilled to see all the interest in our upcoming classes, so we added some more for you.


Upcoming Classes


Because the seats filled so quickly, additional sessions have been added for both the Reversible Bucket Hat class and the Sashiko class.


We also have our first Kitchen Series class on the schedule! In this session, you will make a potato bag and a pot holder. 


Mitered Facing


Facing a quilt is an alternative way to finish it rather than binding it, and it works especially well for artsy quilts that will be displayed. Here, we will be talking about the mitering method. 


First, cut enough 2” strips to make up the circumference of the quilt, plus about 4” for each corner. Join the strips with a diagonal seam at a 45 degree angle. Press open.


Then, fold and press the strip down about 3/8”.

Pin the raw edges of the strip along the raw edge of the quilt. Stop about 5” from the corners on all directions. Stitch around the edge of the quilt with a 1/4” seam allowance, stopping 5” from the corner. 

Take your quilt to the ironing board and manipulate the end of the strips to create a miter at each corner. Cut a 1/4” from the crease. Pin in place.

Then, finish stitching to the edge. 


Lastly, turn the facing to the back of the quilt and hand sew it down.

Happy sewing everyone,

Phyllis and the QA staff
