Love This Fabric!
I was looking for a nautical themed fabric for my porch. Loved the anchors, but wanted them a bit smaller. I found another one by Robert Allen which looked nice. It was $179.00 a yard! Yikes! ????Kinda a no-brainer for me! The larger anchors are just fine!

Pretty good, not great
I bought this fabric because my grandson chose it for his room curtains. The feel is a heavy, linen-y, loose weave with many horizontal slubs, very charming. Unfortunately, the pattern is NOT square. If you try to cut the panels perfectly vertical with the pattern (say lined up with the center of each anchor), the pattern goes slightly downhill horizontally.
Two widths were joined for each panel (it's a wide window). Although the pattern should match exactly every 13.375" (not 13.675" as the description says), there are slight differences between each column of anchors. So, some of the joined anchors don't quite match up, while others do. Try to join along the white space between anchor columns, rather than matching anchors as I did.
This fabric wants to ravel! I had to sew near the outside of every seamed edge.
If I had to do it over, I'd use this fabric for pleated drapes rather than rod pocket curtains. That way you can roll hems on three sides and not worry about the fabric raveling.

The fabric seems really nice and I am pleased with it, but we haven't started sewing with it yet.
