Thanks for all the suggestions on possible layouts for my HST project. In the end, for the first row and subsequent odd-numbered rows, light to dark going left to right. And then moving down to the even-numbered rows, light to dark going right to left.
At 32 x 40 inches, this will become a wall hanging for my sewing room.
It was difficult to arrange the colours, as some of the Kona's were very close in colour. There are two blue-green blocks in the top row that don't really belong with either green or blue, and some of the light blue ones had a hint of violet in them. But I'm happy because I used the Kona Sunrise charm pack and now have an interesting wall hanging for my sewing room.
My first thought is to quilt diagonally -- bottom left to top right -- on both sides of the seam. But not sure what colour thread to use. Would love to hear your suggestions on quilting and thread colour.
