I haven't finished stitching the binding, but I am still contemplating ripping out the quilting stitches and replacing them with the red thread shown in the photos, what do you think? The size of this topper is 19" x 19" other than copying it from Terry's photo I am not sure if I need to credit anyone else, I will check with Terry and if so I will update this post.
This morning I took my 4 year old Newfie, Midnight, to the groomers for the first time, I hated spending the money, but I think it will be worth every penny. When he came home and went out and played with our German Shepherd, Hunter, the snow DID NOT ball up on his feet and underside! Think I'm going to consider adding an occasional grooming to the budget, even if it means one (or two) less trips to the quilt shop!
