Arlene's Velvet rail fence

I think Arlene made this for a friend.  The black borders are velvet.  This was quilted with a freehand leaf pattern in the two portions with blocks, stitch in the ditch around the velvet borders and a computerized leaf pattern in the very outer border.  This was last summer, and I think this was my first time fitting a design to a border.
I just returned from MQX in Providence and attended some AWESOME classes on the Pro-Stitcher and the Art and Stitch program.  I can't wait to put all that education to use!
