Finishing Tip: How to Miter a Corner

Just Cross Stitch magazine's website has a tutorial on mitering corners I thought folks who want to try this at home should see. A mitered corner is when two strips of fabric, one at the top and one at the side, meet at a forty-five degree angle.  You see this in pillow corners when the stitching is framed by fabric strips.  It's a nice finishing touch and although I personally find it hard to do, this tutorial is excellent.
