    Yes. You have to cut a boarder strip and a backing piece and a batting piece. I use a 2/3" seam. Pin your boarder and batting together on front of quilt and add the backing piece to back (pin) then stitch the seam. finish edge as you like.

    Oh, now I get it! It took me a few minutes to visualize what you were telling me to do...ha. But, I think that I got it. Thank you very much!
