If you're going to lay it out like that, I would lay out some tiles with the joint you plan to use and double check the measurement from the shower floor to the window trim. You want to make sure you don't have a sliver at the window.

I didn't think about how the grout lines would look mismatched on this corner with the bullnose but I can't imagine doing it any other way. I'm probably over-thinking it.

You've found one of the inherent puzzles with pre-made bullnose. There are others. I used to lament the lack of bullnose trim for many tiles, but as a result have changed the way I do things. A change for the better in my case.

A piece of Quadec or mitering the vertical corner would look best IMHO.

I see how mitering could have worked a little better but that ship already sailed. The field tiles on the left are already set. But Mrs. JJ looked at how I have it set up and says it looks nice, so I'm good-to-go.

And I see what you mean by "inherent puzzles", as I've found one on the other end of the tub. I was thinking of either method shown below. First one would have an odd grout line blending into the bullnose radius and the second one had good grout line but odd offset. I think the solution here is also mitering. But I think I'd have to keep mitering all the way around the two walls of the tub unless I just transition to a regular joint after the bullnose.

Joe, I'd do the first one and might even cope the vertical tile to horizontal.

Just an update on my slow moving build.

I got the floor done:

Then I ran into a bit of a problem where 4 layers of Kerdi overlap due to the corners. I tried to keep it as thin as possible but it was still too much.
I had to grind the backside of the tile so it would sit correctly.

Here's the end of the tile after grinding:
