Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This diamond pattern is fun and versatile. One of our newer Makers made this quilt that would be perfect for a friend who needs a blanket on the go. At the tender age of 12, María experienced the devastating loss of her father. Left without his support, she and her three brothers took on the responsibility of providing for themselves. Despite the hardships, María's determination pushed her to continue her education, attending school until sixth grade.
With a drive to support herself, María embarked on a new journey at the age of 15, working as a house cleaner. The long hours and demanding tasks were a testament to her unwavering work ethic and determination to make a better life for herself.
Life took another unexpected turn when María found herself expecting her first child. Sadly, the father of her child abandoned them upon learning of her pregnancy. Undeterred by this setback, María persevered and worked tirelessly to support herself and her unborn child, taking care of children to earn a living. She does that now with One Common Thread.
