Mitered Blanket--No problem

I hit 30 weeks last week.  This is always the point where I realize that the baby is coming...and QUICK!  Time always seems to fly the last couple months--at least for me anyway.  So I have been in Baby-mode, trying to get everything ready for her arrival.

I have had this fabric for a receiving blanket for awhile.  I wanted to try something new with the binding.  I have never done the mitered edge look.  I think I have always been a little scared of mitered edges.  But I found this great tutorial online, and decided to give it a whirl.   I was surprised at how easy and quickly it came together.  I love how it turned out.  All this baby stuff is getting me SO excited to see that little girl!
The tutorial I followed was pretty self-explanatory.  I was a little confused about the pinning in step 2.  I wasn't sure what it was supposed to look like once I had everything pinned.  So, in case any of you have the same problem, here is a picture.
So for those of you who may be a little afraid of mitered edges, be afraid no more!  Hooray for online tutorials!
