Saint George and the Dragon :: A 3-D Sugar Cookie Story Quilt

by | Apr 25, 2013 | Kids in the Kitchen, St. George | 6 comments

IN THE DAYS when monsters and giants and fairy folk lived in England, a noble knight was riding across a plain…  ~ Saint George and the Dragon
Even though it ended up being a two day project (we started the cookies yesterday, before I left for a night-out with friends, and finished decorating them today after our new math tutor left), the kids all really enjoyed creating another Sugar Cookie Story Quilt in honor of the feast of St. George!  
They went with pretty much the same design as last year, with a few changes.  Mainly they just wanted to make this year’s cookie quilt 3-D by standing up the Castle and Dragon, and adding St. George


A couple lightning bolts “glued” on with melted candy completed the “huge flames that covered all the heavens with smoke and brimstone so that the knight was forced to retreat to save his body from the scorching fire.” 
And I loved how “St. George” really made sure that fire-breathing dragon “would stir no more…” 

Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. ~G. K. Chesterton

Happy (belated) Feast of St. George!

    These are just darling. I love the idea of a cookie quilt and it is so fun to see St. George, the dragons, and the castles standing up!

    Tell the children thank you from our children for all the efforts they put into helping you with such beautiful projects AND posting it on your website.

    And thank you for all the sleep you loose! 🙂

    Adorable! We have this book and love it, because the princess is Una, and that is my oldest daughter's name, and she was born on St. George…never saw the book until she was already 3!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! St. George's feast is BIG in our home as well – I have a seven yr old daughter that LOVES dragons and St. George! (even the girls can love them) 🙂 We also have the book pictured – a favorite!

    The Chesterton quote is really great! Thanks so much for posting that! I will write that one down!

    Happy Feast of St. George!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
