Can anyone please help me with this? I am new to quilting. I am ready to cut my boarders but i am confused. Quilt top measures 48 1/2 by 60 1/2 inches. Instructions called for 7, 2-1/2 in by 42 in strips. Am I supposed to sew all of them together in a long strip then piece?. 7 strips seem like too many. Thank You for your time.
