Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Description

 This fun baby quilt is called Nascar Baby and is a fun combination of reds, yellows and blues.  This quilt was made by one of our younger Makers Flor who sews when she's out of school and on weekends.   From the time Flor was a baby, Flor earned the endearing nickname "Flower" due to her unruly hair. She had a loving mother who cared for her until she turned four, but her mother's illness took a toll on their family.

It was at this tender age that Flor's older sister, Kendy, stepped in to become her guardian. At just 16 years-old, Kendy embraced the responsibility of caring for Flor and her other siblings. It was a challenging time for the young sister, as she had to navigate the complexities of life without much support from anyone else. However, with unwavering determination and the help of a higher power, they found the strength to persevere.

Flor's sister, Kendy, became a pillar of strength in her life. She showered Flor with love and care, treating her as if she were her own daughter. Despite the difficulties they faced, Kendy's unwavering commitment to her siblings never wavered. She worked tirelessly to provide for them and ensure that they had everything they needed to thrive.

As Flor grew older, she found solace and purpose in her studies. She excelled in school and consistently made the honor roll. One Common Thread has provided her family with work, allowing Flor and her sisters to contribute to their household income. With the money she earns, Flor was able to purchase school supplies like pencils, ensuring she had the tools needed to succeed academically.

Flor has a dream that burns brightly within her heart—to become a primary school teacher and inspire and educate young children. She yearns to make a positive impact on their lives, just as her sister has done for her. With determination and a relentless pursuit of knowledge, Flor has set her sights on achieving her dream.
