Handmade large high quality quilt made by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This beautiful herringbone designed scrap quilt was made by Velkis. Velkis is 26-years-old and has two children, one daughter and one son and is pregnant with her third child. 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.
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.
