Carole suggested to mix in a few half-square-triangle units in an altogether different colour which I think was a perfectly good idea. It adds some interest and saves the quilt from being dull. For my quilt, this would be blue in between all the brown/rust/orange hues. Block layout before sewing one of the four half-square-triangle blocks:

The quilt top measures 32.5 x 32.5 inches. I will add it to my “to be quilted“ stack and start the next quilt top while waiting for the batting that I ordered to arrive.
