Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Description

Oneyda made this beautiful and large quilt called Glacier Bay. Her journey reflects the challenges she has faced and her determination to provide for her family despite the obstacles she's encountered.

Growing up in San Luis, Santa Bárbara, with her parents and 10 siblings, she experienced the difficulties of limited financial resources. The need to prioritize work over education meant that she only attended first grade and did not have the opportunity to learn to read. However, her resilience and determination shine through as she navigates through life's challenges.

Becoming a mother at the age of 14 brought additional responsibilities and pressures. Raising three children while facing financial constraints is undoubtedly challenging. However, her unwavering faith and gratitude to God and others who have supported her, have helped her find happiness and strength in the face of adversity.

Sewing has become an essential part of her daily life, as it provides a means to earn income and support her family. Oneyda's commitment to sewing demonstrates her resourcefulness and determination to provide food and necessities for her loved ones. Despite the difficulties she has faced, she continues to work hard and embrace her role as a mother and provider.

 

This quilt took many weeks for Oneyda to make and it is so beautiful with an array of blues, whites, greens and yellow.  It is all about being happy and finding the joy in life.
