There’s No Such Thing as Dragons

My daughter, Elizabeth, named this week’s quilt and pattern. As soon as she saw the rough drawing of the dragon, it reminded her of a children’s book by Jack Kent, called There’s No Such Thing as Dragons. The book is about a real dragon that comes to visit a little boy. His mother refuses to believe it exists because she doesn’t believe in dragons. The dragon starts out small but keeps growing and growing. Finally, the mom has to acknowledge it’s existence and as soon as she does, the dragon shrinks again. The story is sweet and entertaining. The message is subtle, but the question is posed– how big and clear does reality have to be in order for someone to alter their worldview and accept it?

Here is the very real quilt and pattern:

    G’day Jamie. I love your dragon quilt. It looks fantastic. I haven’t heard of that book,but it does sound like fun. If there are fairies at the bottom of my garden, then I believe there are dragons out there somewhere as well. Hopefully they are bright and colourful like the ones on your quilt. Take care. Liz…
