Handmade large high quality quilt made by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras


Description
This beautiful quilt was made by Velkis and her sister in law Dilvia.  They make gorgeous quilts.  This is a grandmothers flower and dot design with a variety of scrap fabrics and a super cozy brown minky backing. 

Velkis is 26-years-old and has two children, one daughter and one son.  She is the daughter of Ruth.  Her husband works infrequently, but the work she does for OneCommonThread.org provides her the opportunity to buy desperately needed food essentials like powdered milk for her children. Like most women in the bordo, she has no refrigerator and cooks over an open flame. She loves the confidence that sewing has given her, as it has changed her way of living.  She is grateful to have it as a way to make much needed income to help support her family. 

Update:  Since Co-Vid hit there has been less policing in the bordo so Velkis and her families lives were threatened severely by gangs.  Since July of 2020 she and her family have fled the bordo and with donations to One Common Thread they have been able to build a new home that houses her family, her sister and her family, and her brother and his family.  She has also had the chance to buy her own refrigerator and oven.
