Purple & Orange Rail Fence

Now that my talk to the Amoskeag Quilter's Guild is over (I was "a hit," but more on that later), I can get to work on the purple and orange rail fence quilt for my nephew. Here are some of the blocks I've got planned. They aren't sewn together yet.

 I was a bit worried about this combination. Both prints are rather busy, but I think they work.

I like this orange one with the diamonds.

I wasn't sure about this purple print, but I think it's really cool combination.
 
I wasn't sure about this orange print either, but I really like it here.

All of these blocks are looking great! And of course you were a "hit". Look forward to hearing all about your talk.

I thought this was for a teenager. Is there such a thing as too busy? I personally love that one.

I agree with stitchinpenny - if he wants purple and orange, it's gonna be bright, so I say, the brighter the better.

I, too, am looking forward to hearing more about your talk to the Guild.
