Nobody, not even experienced production line sewers, sews full, or even half speed around a corner, especially a sharp 90 degree corner. The way to do a corner is to sew up within a couple stitches of where you are going to turn, turn the wheel by hand until you reach the point you want to turn, lift the foot with the needle still in the work, turn the corner, let the foot back down, and then continue to sew.
