    I don't trim the Aida fabric. I draw a line a quarter inch from where I want the border to be. Lay the border fabric face down and sew my quarter inch seam. If I want mitered borders, I sew the border pieces together leaving a 1/4" unsewn on the inner seam. Then I press in under and machine applique the border on.
    I have found that if I trim the Aida fabric, it tends to fray and pull out of the seam. I usually 2-4 inches of extra on each side. Once I quilt it, it won't pull out.

    That is really pretty. Do you have the name of the cross stitch pattern? I also do cross stitch and my Mom would love that!
