Wolverines playing

I haven't had much chance to sew lately, so I don't have much to show that's quilt related. However I really want to share a little video I made when I went to the Nordic Ark with my family in the beginning of this month:


When we were there they had six wolverines, and we got to see two of the cubs playing for a really long time. This was on a Monday morning, and we were more or less the only people in the park at the time, and a couple of the wolverines came up close to the fence - this is my Dad saying hi the one we nicknamed Finn



(there's a whole long story behind the name - if any Norwegians out there have read the Knut Gribb stories, they might figure it out ;-))

The baby quilt...

...is finally finished and was dropped off yesterday afternoon. I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and I think the lady who ordered it was very happy:



The top is machine pieced and appliquéd. There's Quilter's Dream cotton batting and a soft and cuddly fleece on the back so the little baby boy it's for will have it nice and comfy. I machine quilted it in the same pattern I used on my Chimneys and Cornerstones quilt. Sorry I didn't get too great a photo of it, but lamplight doesn't work well with my camera, but the pic should be clickable for a closer look.

Hope I can catch up on some other sewing this weekend! Have a great and creative couple of days ;-)
