Handmade large high quality quilt made by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Jessica and her mother Ruth made this gorgeous, Grandma's Flower Garden with border, designed quilt. Jessica is 14 and works only when she is done with school for the day. Her mother Ruth is our actual Maker and she works very hard to provide for the two children she still has at home. In November their house flooded during Hurricanes Iota and Eta and they worked very hard to rebuild and continue to preserver in Honduras.
Jessica is Ruth's youngest daughter and sisters with Velkis and Damaris. She was also relocated after the pandemic hit. She doesn't sew very often but I wanted to include her because she is such a responsible child. Jessica is almost 14-years-old and feels like One Common Thread is apart of her extended family. She must always do school first but then on the weekends she is found sewing because she told me she loves it! I keep encouraging her to do things that 14-year-olds do but I think the sense of creating something others find value in makes her fell confident. So I try to help her balance her sewing love for the love of schooling!
