Description: Welcome to a world of wonder and enchantment where three different realms unite! This design features three different dragons: symbolizing Majesty (designed by Karen Weaver of Black Swan), Magic (designed by Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams, Inc.) and Wisdom (designed by yours truly). Each dragon showcases it's designer's unique style, and they are all compositionally united by an interlocking knotwork border, and color-coordinated lettering.

Background Information: (Jennifer's words) This leaflet came about because all three of us admired each other's work, especially the fantasy designs. We thought it would be great fun to find a way to combine our three styles into one design, and thus "Legends of the Dragons" was born. This versatile design can be stitched as shown, as individual squares using the smaller border included in the leaflet, or even as a vertical bellpull. The only limit is your own imagination...so let it take flight!


Stitching Comments: This design has something for everybody! Choose your favorite dragon and stitch it by itself, with or without its own border... choose a dragon that is primarily whole stitches: Magic...or one that has lots of quarter stitches and blended colors: Wisdom...or one that has a combination of both: Majesty! Or choose your favorite color: Majesty is primarily regal purples, Magic: mostly blues, and Wisdom leans heavily toward green . You may even want to try using one of the many brands of overdyed fibers to give the border a different look! Since the complete design as shown is not terribly large, it is a very manageable project. We hope you will enjoy stitching Legends of the Dragons!

Our leaflet cover model was beautifully stitched by Kathy Geddes Bonham.
