Would appreciate your help!  For the first time I have made a machine pieced quilt that has 2 90 degree inside angles.  I've only done the usual 90 degree corners.  I can't figure out how to miter it properly or figure out how to cut down on the bulk.  Sure would appreciate some suggestions.  Many thanks.  Liz

Liz - That is a difficult one.  Here is a video on binding a curved edge.  I would think you just have to make it tighter.  But how to reduce bulk I just don't know.  Best of luck.

Hi--I've done it on table runners and treat it just like I do on an outside angle, but do slightly less than a 1/4 inch seam. Also, once you sew it, trim it as close as possible to the seam. Let me know how it works.
