Handmade large high quality quilt made by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This is a modern twist on baby quilts. This Americana quilt was made by Madeline and a group of Makers that live in the southern part of Honduras. Madeline lived in the same slum her entire life but then the gang in her slum forced her family out and they had to flee for their lives.
Their new home was made with donations from One Common Thread. They moved 8 hours out of the city and have to take a bus back and forth to bring drop off and collect projects. Their friends and family in their new pueblo are grateful to have work under the tutelage of Madeline and her mother Wendy.
