in a perfect work that is right that is the best way to do it (paint to an edge all the way around) however its not always the case. this id not a DIY thing so much especialy because your car is Black, But it can be spot repaired, which it fixing the area them painting only that area without making on the panle itself (just edge'*) them ones you have painted the area you would spray ablending reducer over all the "dry" edges to "melt" them into the old paint and smooth out.
Or the whole quarter can be painted and have just the sail panle clear blended using the same technic. unfortunatly non of these repairs will last more then say 3-5 years, which is why painting to an edge it the most ideal way to paint any car.
I beleave both Handdrumman and Bandit can show you pics of there sail panles and how the blend has now failed and looks very bad.
