Cityscape contest top ten: New York, San Francisco, Kowloon, London, Venice… and Delft!

Today we wrap up our cityscape contest, which spawned a travel guide's worth of amazing, charming and unique fabrics. And yes, many of the usual suspects all appeared in the top ten — London, Venice, San Francisco, New York. But the winner was a fabric celebrating the Dutch city of Delft, hometown to Bora, our all-time Spoonflower contest champ. She created a lovely fabric to commemorate Delft, in South Holland, a very old city famous for its blue pottery and home to the painter Vermeer (thank heavens Wikipedia is back up this morning!).
