Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Description

This beautiful scrappy quilt called Precious Kitty, was made by our Maker Ingrid.  This quilt has such beautiful colors and a super soft velvet backing. 

"My name is Ingrid and I made this quilt called Subway Stop. I am from Honduras, born in the pueblo of Santa Barbara.At 15-years-old I left with a boy who I spent 6 months with, and over time he began to mistreat me and I separated from him. Then I returned to my father's house, as time went on I met another boy, and we were together for 2 years, and also over time he began to mistreat me. Then again I separated from him. At that time I emigrated to San Pedro Sula where an aunt gave me a place to live in a little house made of plastic and cardboard.

After a while I met a boy with whom I got together. After 4 months I got pregnant with my daughter Dinely. I had my daughter in normal labor and it was my first happiness. When she was one year old we emigrated again to Santa Barbara because there was a lot of violence and we fled from all the problems. Five years after emigrating I got pregnant with my son Keylor, who also had a normal birth. During my pregnancy I was alone because my partner had emigrated to San Pedro Sula because in the place where we lived the jobs pay 100 lps all day ($4) and over the months he was able to get a room and rent it so that we could emigrate again to San Pedro Sula. Over time we decided to get married civilly and over the years we got a plot of land here on a bordo where we built a little house out of sheets and plastic where we don't have a floor. I only studied until 6th grade and I've never worked I've been a housewife and I take care of my 2 sons."
