This coverlet is mitered to better fit the 4 poster bed, the corners at the foot end of the bed are 'cut out' (well, actually, they're not woven in the first place) so that the end of the coverlet lies smoothly against the foot of the bed. This style is fringed only on the foot end of the coverlet, where the unmitered are fringed along the sides. See the mille fleur coverlet, for instance.

This is a pretty pattern, whether worked in two colors, as shown, or in solid navy or burgundy, to mention a few colors usually popular. Both mitered and unmitered can be woven in full or single size.
