The Princess Guide: "Support"

Unfortunately, Deb Jones knows the price of breast cancer more than most people. Deb, a teacher at Keith, jumped right into making this beautiful quilt. It's machine-pieced and hand-quilted. It's one of those that you have to see to believe.

"Support" was our May 2011 Calendar Girl. The caption reads: "Support" Created by Deb Jones, Cypress, Texas. She says,"I never knew my maternal grandmother because she died of breast cancer. I lost a mother-in-law to breast cancer in the early 1980's, and I have a sister who was recently treated for ovarian cancer. I am calling this quilt "support" for all the daughters, sisters and friends who provide support for those they love. This quilt by far has been the most important quilt I have made. The women I honor with the quilt are survivors because of support and research paid for by tireless volunteers."

As you can tell, we had a lot of fun taking pictures of "Support."

This picture reminds makes me think of ET covered with a quilt:

These quilts all have such great personalities! I had the best time posing them!

See what we had to contend with on our photo shoots? This brute has way too much fun at the Creek.
