Stash busting on UFO day

These are some of the strips I started out with for the 31 blocks I needed to make.
The small 4-patch units used 1 1/2" squares of the colored and wow fabric.

Here I am sewing the units back to back.

These strips were the quickest to sew for the blocks.

And here are all 31 blocks laid out, ready to be squared up to be mailed to Moira tomorrow.

I also got a little bit further on the sashing for the Quilt for the Cure top, but haven't gotten around to taking a picture of the progress for that.

Now I really need to clean up the mess I created while sewing up a storm. :o)

Gabe, I LOVE this quilt...what is the pattern?

Thank you, Cheri.
Don't know if there's a specific name for the block, but it's a modified nine-patch block that finishes at 6" (squared up to 6 1/2").
The solid blocks are cut at 2 1/2" and for the little 4-patch units in it I cut strips at 1 1/2". These blocks will be alternated with heart blocks like in the comfort quilt I received. You can see a picture of the quilt when you browse down in my blog. Let me know if you need more information. This is an easy block to piece and would look great in many different settings.
