Except I'd PP the 2 side units so I wouldn't have to fuss with fabric at odd angles without a foundation under it. But how fast would those blocks be -- you don't even have to make any seams or units match in the middle, because that strip is there! You could use white or hot pink for the background instead of black, and make scrappy butterflies, if you have other pinks & greens in your stash.
You could UP size the butterflies to cut down on the number needed, too.

One of the LQS that I often shop at sponsors quilt-making efforts for a children' hospital. Here's the method they use for the quick and easy quilts. http://www.thesilverpenny.com/...rojectCribQuilt.html The make a slight change in the pattern to make it even simpler. They use width of fabric strips and do not add any borders. I've make quite a few of these and, though they aren't intricate in design, with your cute fabrics it would be really cute. Here's a pic showing a couple of 4-H girls with the quilt they made this way.
If you are looking for something easy, the baby size "Yellow Brick Road" pattern calls for 6 FQs plus 1.25 or 1.5 yard depending on the size of the quilt (48"x48" or 48"x57") yards for border and binding.

Sorry too late in reading this post, this is a baby quilt I made with a charm pack. The pattern is free from the Moda Bakeshop. I couldn't find the link this morning but I do have the PDF saved if anyone wants it.
I had viewed this thread before and when I saw the fabrics I immediately thought WW!! Was going to make a comment to that affect but someone already had....such good ideas (as always) everyone had! So I had to come and see the finished top! Just Perfect! Beautiful! Your neighbor is going to love it!

i was happily sewing the binding strips together this morning..started pressing it, and guess what? i sewed them together wrong..the seam is on the right side of fabric! ROFL! so i took it outside on the deck, and unsewed them all..while watching the hummers on my flowers..
