Adding a Scroll to the Stair Riser Patterns

At the ATHA national class one of my students asked me to draw a scroll similar to the scroll on my large rug around her stair riser pattern. Creativity does not happen everyday but sometimes everything lines up just right and it happens very easily.

This scroll design can be added to any stair riser or leave the center blank and add a year or last name.

The area outside the scroll I see as hit and miss, like my Chalfonte Fantasy (room-sized rug).  The actual pattern continues to about where the photo above ends.  Until I get the final drawings to Kris, this pattern will be offered as a custom order.
