Default Making a bed throw

Hi, I've just started a small soft furnishings business working from home, and so far have made lots of curtains and blinds. Someone wants a bed throw and I thought this would be straightforward enough. The fabric is 137cm wide and frays badly, it's a heavy chenile type fabric with diamond pattern and also reversible, so not intending to back with fabric. My question is - should I join widths and use french seam. My initial thoughts were to take two widths, split one and attach half width to either side of full width as in curtain making, then turn in a double fold edge all the way around the resulting panel. Not sure how the bulky french seams will look though. Any thoughts anyone and thanks in anticipation. Jan
