This quilt is for my son's college roommate. He went to one high school and five colleges playing baseball. The colors represent his six schools. Would you run them light to dark or pair them by school?
Sorry for the link, my computer is out of whack and it won't let me post a picture from my phone. So I appreciate the effort for you to look and offer opinions. Thanks!

I like them paired by the schools. Looks great. He'll love it any way you do it though.

I'm partial to the light to dark setting. Great idea for incorporating it all in one quilt.

Can I suggest that you print out the picture in B&W so you can better see how the fabric for the braids (B&W's) gradiate by value - you might want to switch one or two around.
