Using orphan blocks: 9 Patch Strippy

The 9-patch blocks are left over from this
quilt that was completed five years ago or so.
I've long wanted to make a zig-zag strippy (or, as EQ calls it, "half-dropped blocks, vertical set").  The setting fabric is red-orange on white, but it looks peach/solid in the photo. Yes, I know that the corner blocks would be more effective set on point, but that would entail wider borders and I didn't have enough of the border fabric for that.  53" X 72" or thereabouts.
