1) an imaginary goblin or specter used to excite fear
2) something that causes fear or distress out of proportion to its importance
3) mitered corners
Okay, that third definition might only be in my personal dictionary.
I have found a few online tutorials for making mitered corners, but I chickened out again! In this case I had already cut and ironed my border/binding fabric before learning that I would need an extra 2" on each one to do proper mitering. Since I find cutting and ironing to be my least favorite aspects of sewing I couldn't face re-doing it. Instead I did the lame folded-under corners. They were at least neater than the last ones I did so it was a tiny step forward.
Okay, enough of the negativity - I love this fabric! I think it's my favorite Amy Butler print of all time, and this is my favorite colorway too. The blanket is for a beautiful 2 month old boy, Isadore, who, thankfully, has declared to me his ambivalence for mitered corners.
