    Just found this new fabric on Timeless Treasures' website. I like it better than their previous New York City fabrics. This one has a more sophisticated color scheme.

    What do you think of it? Do you think it would have many uses?

    It's not something I would buy. Sorry, I'm sure there are others out there who will disagree.

    I hope it looks brighter in person. Seems a bit dull. Maybe if you quilt around all the major areas in a metallic or something it would bring it out.

    I love this fabric. It would be great for a memory quilt or for someone who collects fabric associated with where they have visited. How do I get some?

    I could see this in a quilt, it would take some careful planning though :wink: :D:D:D

    It is interesting fabric. Would need to be used where you don't cut up the fabric a lot or you would lose the idea of what it is altogether. I could see it as placemats, quilt back, or in a quilt from one of those books that show quilts from fabric too pretty to cut

    I like the colors, but I would never buy it or use it.

    I think it would be a great backing for a New Yorker.
