Quilting: Alternative Mitered Binding Join

How To: Mitered Binding Join
Just a recap of the Mitered Edge Binding Finishing that I've been using on my curvy Christmas Tree Skirt quilts lately, rather than the traditional join. The benefit to this alternative model is that it is much easier to perform on a curvy edge (say, if you started attaching binding on the interior of an Xmas tree skirt quilt). The downside for this method is that instead of getting a sewn seam, you simply get a folded join, but that doesn't seem to be a terribly big deal.
