I think that we have a tendency to think of only deserts when we think of the Arabian Nights. Or to think that any jungle is a mirage. It's not Peeps. That's pretty much just like flying home to Houston, and people on the plane saying, "why is it so green"? They assume that because it is Texas, it is a desert.
The stories span Africa to China, and there is straight up jungle/ farm land/ rain forests and what have you.
Midnight at the Oasis is not only the name of a really classy song, with an even classier video, but it's a sweet action quilt that packs a dramatic punch. We used the dark blue illusion to give the effect that the "palm trees" are floating above an oasis. My favorite part of this quilt is the interesting negative shapes that form from the different directions of the blocks.
And in case you missed it! The book arrived today and is shipping.
