While in the library I picked up the book Sewing Edges & Corners by Linda Lee. It is a smaller book (6″ x 9″) with a spiral binding (which I love!). The book has beautiful color pictures (another plus) and excellent illustrated directions.
A few of the topics covered are: corners, piping, cording, tubing, flanges, bands, bindings, hems, and edges. Each topic has many sub-topics included. For example, under corners, the book covers knife-edge, box, mitered, Turkish, tassels-in-piping and knotted.
The link I provided you with is a book review showing many of the actual pages within the book. It is an excellent resource book I would love to have in my home library.
