I don't know what to say
My only justification is that I feel a need to finish up some Christmas gifts while my LAQ might have time to quilt them. That said, here's the "panel" I purchased on Thursday.
I put panel in quotes because it's really yardage, part of the "Sound of the Woods" line by Kaufman. (I've already done the winter scene for my SIL who requested seasonal wall hangings for the NC mountain cabin she shares with friends.)

And after a morning of stitching today, I am to this point:
But now I have a dilemma that I am hoping some of you readers can help me with. Because I didn't want to piece the top and bottom final borders, I am left with this on all four corners:
I can trim the border to fit, but then I would lose most, if not all, of the "air space" above the trees. I am considering doing angled corners, but wonder if the sides would get "floppy" since this is a wall hanging. I would make the angled corners as shallow as possible. What do you think?
Never mind. After discussing with DH, I decided to fill the upper corners with a right triangle and leave the bottom corners angled. I was really worried that the sides would eventually flop inward if not supported.
