There's a very, very comprehensive tutorial there for mitreing borders.  I urge you to try them.  They are not so hard, they look F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C. on a quilt.  I'm all too guilty of being lazy, whacking just any old border on a quilt just to get the jolly thing finished.  But I also know that the quilts I take that extra time with, to put a fancier border on, they are the ones that really pop. 

It's so worth the time taken.

Anyway.  That's all for now.  See you tomorrow!
