Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Pineapple, Pineapple, Pineapple!! This quilt top was made by Dilvia and her mother Maribel. At 4'10" and 4'11" these two are tiny but mighty. Maribel is 48 years old and has lived with her daughter for many years. Dilvia is the mother of two and has been taking cosmetology classes for the last few months.
Dilvia is married and her husband Johnathan is the brother of many of our other Makers. All of them live out in the country after they were run from their homes in the bordo in San Pedro Sula. Now they are safer but they still miss the perks of city life. One of those perks was more help from ministries and missions that provided school supplies and other needs. Now Dilvia and her mom work very hard to provide these things themselves with the money they earn sewing.
high-quality thread, cotton fabrics for quilt top. This quilt top is not finished so It does not have a backing. The last picture show is the bottom of the quilt top which shows all of the hand stitched work.
