Round about quilt pickings

Im starting a quilt for my step daughter who I have never lived with and don't know very well. Really it's part of my present for my DH, doing something nice for his daughter. I'm mixing it up. she lives in AZ so I think it should be tropical colors.
Anything that shouldn't be there? Anything I need more of? let me know.

Just found your blog from Quilt Dad - your quilting on the placemat is awesome!!! I love to do swirls too... did you do your diagonal across the placemat?
I think you fabric selection is good - love the orange, maybe a darker green?

I know all about doing something nice for the stepkids! Points for you! Arizona is really not tropical though - it is either desert or mountains! Love the colors - maybe less blue?
