I planned this as a completely pieced landscape, but a friend suggested another approach when I was half done. So I decided to separate some of my pieced sections, by underlaying insertions and leaving the edges raw. This was a new approach for me to add to my repertoire. One difficult part of such a forest landscape is to find fabrics that imply the light and shadow and airiness and movement of the clumps of fall leaves. Madras plaids turned at many angles work well.
