Handmade baby quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras


Description

This quilt is a gorgeous coral color and has the hints of days long gone.  This quilt is called Coral Colonizer and made by one of our original Makers named Nancy.  Nancy, is the 21-year-old daughter of Delia another one of our original Makers and has her own unique journey and challenges as a young mother. She has a son named Enrique, who was named after his father, and recently welcomed a new baby girl named Courtney. Unfortunately, Enrique's father left the Bordo due to the threats posed by gangs, resulting in limited involvement in his son's life.

Nancy possesses a quiet demeanor, which may be attributed to her experiences and uncertainties regarding generous people in her life. However, her passion for sewing shines through, and she takes pleasure in being able to provide essentials such as "Pampers and Leche" (diapers and milk) for her young son and daughter. Nancy's commitment to her craft is evident in the beautiful quilts she creates, consistently delivering top-quality work.

Recently, Nancy has moved into her own modest home, which marks an important milestone in her life. She now has a bed and a stove to cook her meals, signifying a sense of independence and stability. While she shares a bathroom with her neighbors, the comforting aspect is that they are all family members, fostering a supportive environment.
