Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Our Maker Madeline made this quilt. Madeline is 19-years-old and a mother of a 2 year old daughter. Since having to leave her bordo in July 2020 things have been very different for her. She and her family moved 8 hours away from San Pedro Sula and that also means 8 hours away from her baby's father. It has been difficult to take care of her on her own but she is grateful to at least have sewing for One Common Thread. When they left the city I kept thinking it would be just a matter of time before she and her mother, Wendy, would stop sewing. However, because there are literally no jobs in Honduras they are grateful to still have the work even if it means taking an 8 hour bus ride every few weeks.
This quilt, Rio de Janeiro, is one of our most popular patterns called Grandma's Flower Garden. It is an absolutely beautiful quilt made with scraps to come together in a work of art.
