Just around the Corner: Quilts with Easy Mitered Borders by Kari M. Carr reveals the secrets behind a versatile quilting technique. Not only does this new book show you how to make mitered corners, but it also includes a range of free quilt patterns that you can use to show off your new skills. You can make your own bags, decorations, and more with a simple technique that presents a professional look for any quilting project.


The book begins with an introduction to the mitered frame border. Not only does Carr include the steps to create this design, but she also advises readers on how to choose fabrics, make markings, and vary between the different types of stitches. Every step is accompanied by an image that will help more visual quilters work through the process of making mitered corners. With the instructions this book provides, you'll be able to start working on your first project with mitered corners in no time.
 

Quilters of all skill levels will appreciate Just around the Corner for the variety in the quilting patterns you're given. Like the introduction, each of these designs has a step-by-step guide with plenty of pictures to assist you. Many often associate mitered corners with table cloths and other linens, but there are no limits in this book. You can put your skills to the test with impressive patterns like the quilting tote bag pattern for the super stylish "Boardwalk Tote" (pg. 36) or a comfortable pillow pattern like the "Cozy Cottage Pillow" (pg. 20).
 

Just around the Corner: Quilts with Easy Mitered Borders is going to take the quilting world by storm, and quilters of all kinds should get a copy to see how to add that perfect finishing touch to their latest quilt pattern.
