My table runner is done, all that's left is the binding and I've run into a hiccup.... the runner has two end points - which are regular corners to miter' however, there are 4 other corners that are 45 degree angles leading to the end points.  I am having a devil of a time figuring them out because the designer states to do them like regular corners.

Am i missing something?  If I can't figure it out, I'll head to my LQS tomorrow for words of wisdom.

Here's a video from youtube that shows how to do miters for less than 90 degrees. I think it starts with an angle greater than 90, but then goes to less than 90.
