Yes of course you can - BUT you need to be aware that you need more fabric at the corners to work with than you think you might - so not one to be attempted if you are short of fabric! You can also use more than one fabric - so a double or triple border with a mitre is also possible.
I have just followed Valerie's instructions for my first mitred corner borders. Wow, how easy is that!! Big thank you. My engineer husband has been saying for some time now that mitred corners would look so much better than straight stitching on borders, and he is right. They aren't perfect, yet, but more practice will do the trick.
