A coupe interior-Where do you put the rear seams

I am planning out my '31 coupe interior and trying to figure out the best sight lines for putting seams in the rear corners. Doesn't seem that I can make the entire quarter-back quarter out of one solid run. The back corners,at least at the upper 1/3 have the possibility of curves rather than 90 degree angles. I am planning on using ABS sheet s the backing.

So, if you've done, or seen this, where do the seams go? Three possibilities I have thought of would be -
1. At the rear of the quarter, jut before the bend/curve and then picking up the curve with the rear panel
2. Including the bend/curve with the rear quarter panel and having the seam at the edge of the rear window-the back panel just being flat.
3. Including the bend/curve with the rear quarter panel but ending where the curve hits the back panel-making the flat back panel extend all the wall across the back.
Advice,options and especially photos would be greatly appreciate. Thanks.
