I have mitered only a few times many long years ago. What should be so easy just isn't! :o) Love the little shrooms.

I have done a few mitered corners. They can be tricky. Good that you stuck it out and you ended up with a great one! Well done.
very cute mushrooms.

Miter corners are tricky at first but sometimes well worth the look! Good job!

Lovely makings! One of my 1st quilts had mitred corners as I didn't know that it was OK to have a log cabin effect on the edge. Mind you back then I turned things RST and sewed as I hadn't learned the binding technique either. Pretty shrooms!

Nice job, Lynn. I have the worst time matching things up.

Learning new tricks so always so satisfying! Your applique reminds me that that should be one of my new tricks to learn!!
