Tag's New Blanket!

I finished hand-stitching the binding on Tag's blanket/crate pad last night.  Washed and dried it once I got home from work today...just pulled it out of the dryer.  Yeah, I see you caught that...hand-stitching.  Seems like a lot of work for a dog blanket.  But, ya know, I enjoy having something to do while watching 'there's nothing on tv tonight' repeats. 
         
See the butt?  hahahaha...

It measures about 26 x 38 inches. I quilted in straight lines with a variegated brown/cream thread - on each side of the seam lines, both vertically and horizontally.  My thought was to 'frame' each square...and I think I accomplished that.  I think Tag is one lucky pup...to have such sweet friends as Joanne, Miles, Riley and Jonesy.  Thank you so much!

I bet Tag loves it.
My idea of making mine a blanket was to buy fake sheep fur and throw it on the floor, haha.
