Guild Auction Mini

This week I have been working on a mini quilt for our Guild Mini Quilt Auction.  I belong to the Kaw Valley Quilt Guild and our quilt show is April 30, May 1.

As the chair of the Mini Quilt Auction I wanted to get a couple of minis made.  Here is the first one.

The blocks were made by members of the Yahoo Group "Sew Many Swaps" last year in our Midget Blocks swap.  These little  4.5" sweeties were so fun to make.  As the hostess for this swap I collected a set of "charity blocks" from this swap, and this is the first set that I am putting together to auction at our Quilt Show.  The proceeds from the sale of this quilt will go to Women's Transitional Care in Lawrence, KS.

I still need to quilt this, but I was thinking of binding it in scrappy 30's binding.  I sure have enough scraps left to make plenty of binding.  The quilt measure 18" x 23" so it just comes in within the 24" size limit.

I made this first one out of the applique blocks in the set.  I am going to make several more using the pieced blocks.  They are just so darn cute that I am having a blast designing setting for these tiny titans!

How do you think I should quilt it???  I was thinking of McTavishing inside each block, stitching in the ditch around each border/sashing, and doing a little leafy vine in the outer border.  What do you think?
