Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Yensi is a skilled and creative individual. Creating a quilt with a animal print theme using 1" hexagons is a labor-intensive task that requires patience and attention to detail. The choice of a soft minky backing adds a cozy and comfortable touch to the quilt.
Living in poverty can make it challenging for Yensi to access the necessary resources and materials for her craft. However, her determination and talent enable her to overcome these obstacles and create beautiful pieces of art, such as this african wildlife themed quilt. Sewing the quilt by hand, Yensi invests her time and effort into crafting a unique and meaningful item.
This quilt not only showcases Yensi's creative abilities but also reflects her cultural appreciation by incorporating African wildlife prints. Yensi's quilt not only serves as a functional item to provide warmth and comfort but also carries a story of resilience and creativity. It is a testament to her determination and love for her craft, despite the challenges she faces in her circumstances. The quilt may hold sentimental value for Yensi and her family, symbolizing her dedication to her role as a mother and her ability to create beauty even in difficult circumstances.
