I know I've commented before but this really is so good with the border - and admiring it again I just wanted to say what a good idea to put the warning/ clarification in red Rhonda - it really does make it much more noticeable! I may borrow that idea if that's ok with you!

Gorgeous design Rhonda! I love the border and the fact that this is a centred design. This gorgeous sunny design will make awesome quilts!
Thank you kindly for your lovely comment, Moira! It is much appreciated!:-)

That's an ideal fabric design.....just some batting and a little bit of sewing to make quickly a beautiful looking plaid !

Really love the "scratchy" background texture used with this beautiful earthy color palette, Rhonda! Another lovely design.
Thank you for your lovely comment, sketchingmagpie! :-)
Thank you for your kind comment, Anino! :-)
Thank you very much for the awesome comment, Materialsgirl! :-) To answer your question ~ I love playing with geometric designs, particularly for patchwork and quilting projects. This combination of chevron/ zigzag patterns and these colours just seemed to work together and the name was inspired by the visuals.

Oh yum! Love the design, the uncommon but very effective color combinations and the texturing you used. What was your inspiration?
Thank you very much for your sweet comment, Sylvie!
This is lovely, I Know a few households that this would just add that finishing touch! :^D
Thank you for your lovely comment, Darja!
Nice design in nice warm colors! I like it!
Thank you for the nice comment, Roz! I have to admit that I love the design challenge of balancing aesthetics and geometry in designs for fabric, patchwork blocks and quilt designs, so this theme was a joy to play with! :-)

Thank you very much, Cally and Anne! I really appreciate your kind and supportive comments! :-)
This would make a really beautiful quilt Rhonda!
Thank you, Barbara and Isabella, for your positive comments! I love quilt designs that use clever piecing to deceive the eye into seeing one shape of colour and pattern that might actually be made up of several smaller pieces of fabric That was the effect that was aimed for in this faux piecing cheater quilt. I am so glad that you appreciate how this works in the "Desert Mirage"!
I love how cleverly the shapes flow into each other to create a very pleasing pattern. Your perfectly proportioned border is the ideal frame for this fascinating and well-designed quilt. Sensational!
That is such a nice thing to say! Thank you for your support, Penny!
Rhonda this is so gorgeous displayed in the extra large view for the contest. It really shows off the detail and texture of your stunning design. You definately got my vote. Good Luck Rhonda!
Thank you very much for the marvelous comments, Elishka, Carina, Brittney and Heather! I value your feedback and support!
Rhonda, this is so wonderful!!!
This very much reminds me of the desert! And I love the border design, very pretty!
Thank you very much for your kind words, Emma and Virginie! Emma, your flattery has made me blush!!
oh it's a gorgeous design Rhonda ! Beautiful colors and textures :)
Rhonda.....I think you should be crowned the Queen of Geometry! This is absolutely stunning. I love the way all that strength and structure has been softened by your palette and texture.....beautiful : D
Thank you so much, Angela, Julie and Patty! Your compliments and positive messages mean a lot to me!
Great job on this project Rhonda! The work involved in this design is unbelievable, and I love the colors! Good luck!
I love the colour, texture and pattern in your design Rhonda, it's beautiful!
Such intricate piecing of your textured quilt shapes creates a sparkling design!
Thank you very much, Michelle, Katarina and Jennifer! I really appreciate your thoughtful and generous comments!
I love your asymmetry, it really brings the chevron to a new level. Very nice!
Such an amazing design, beautiful colors and texture!!!Great work!!!:)
Great colour combination, like the border also draws the eyes in :)
Thank you very much, Alex, Kim, Dinorah and Sharon! Your kind words have put a big grin on my face!

Love this design Rhonda! wonderful work x
Thank you so much for the sweet comment, Sannie!:-)
Gorgeous design Rhonda. It's got a really sandy feeling to it. Love the patterns and colors.
What a thrill it is to read all of these positive comments! Thank you very much, Samarra, Donna, Patricia, Vo, Lori, Carmen and Kisse!
This is beautiful, so sandy and "deserty" ! Love it!
Your kilt is amazing! It seems to have a 3d efect! very nice work!
Rhonda, I love your interlocking chevron border, the texture and different design elements you used make this mirage delightful to look at!
Totally fabby colors and theme Rhonda!
Beautifully sophisticated and a refreshingly serene palette. Lovely job!
When the visual texture of the printed fabric is combined with the texture of quilt stitching, this is going to be spectacular. Great design!
Oooh, great texture, palette and asymmetry all blended together seamlessly!
Thank you for your poetic observation, Sue! The Nullabor Plain was firmly fixed in my mind as this design took shape.
I love it that you've done something in desert colours Rhonda! This is so aridly beautiful.
Thank you very much, Ottomanbrim, Sue Ellen and Kelly! I really appreciate your kind and thoughtful comments!
Great colors and I like the barkcloth texture too.
Beautiful! I truly admire the intricacy of the piecing, and that you didn't repeat a row of pattern for the whole length! The border is super, and I again, admire the way you've set the repeat so it fits both the length and the width perfectly. The bark-cloth texture really complements the earthy colors and softens the edges of the solid colors.
This looks beautiful, the colors and textures and the overall balance of the design are great!
Thank you so much for the wonderful, warm comments, Victoria, Carole, Tara, Robyn, Shelley, Penny and Kelly!
Another beautiful work of art Rhonda!
Stunning Rhonda. Love the textures as well!
Beautifully constructed design Rhonda, wonderful colours and textures, fantastic work!
This is a fantastic design Rhonda! The colors are warm and inviting! Beautiful work! -Tara
oh my gosh! That is sooo nice!
Rhonda, this is beautiful!!
