Finishing Edges

I'm at a loss as to how to finish the edges on these pieces, any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hate doing bindings so we will just rule that one out from the get go! On two of the pieces the top fabric is larger than the back so I could fold it over the edge and hem onto the backing. The burgandy one is flush with the edges. I don't know that a zigzag edge is right for these pieces or not.

I know this may seem off the wall, but I see taking branches from nature and sewing them to the edge with the thread showing in a x x x design over the branch. you could also take the excess fabric and fold it over a branch and leave the top of the branch exposed at each corner. A friend recently gave me some curly willow branches...guess that is where the idea came from. Lorese Harper
