Back in the Saddle Again...

Back where a friend meets a friend....
Oh, sorry - I got carried away there. It must be the sleepiness since it's after midnight and as much as I SHOULD be in bed, I'm actually awake and finishing another evening of quilting. That's three nights of sewing this week! So exciting and I feel like I'm finally back in the groove.
I finished a top tonight and made the backing. I hope to layer and pin it tomorrow and get the quilting finished before Labor Day. Here's a sneak peek at the backing:

The colors aren't really "me" but they're perfect for the intended recipient. Let's hope I make my deadline!
