A salute to my hometown

Just finished this up tonight. The lettering looks better in person. It's for a charity quilt that has a travel/Americana theme. I mentioned it a few months ago. The front was backstitched in a terra cotta color over the brown because it just didn't look right to me. I think it works. And I've been here a few times myself. (Gee I hope so). This design is from a hardback book of different places in America from 1976. There is even a chart of the Manhattan area and the World Trade Center buildings.
