Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Yesenia, the maker of the Rockets Did Blare quilt, has embarked on her sewing journey with enthusiasm and dedication. As a mother of three, she found her way to sewing by initially assisting friends with their projects. This experience provided her with the opportunity to develop her skills and gradually gain confidence in her abilities.
The combination of various cotton fabrics in vibrant colors adds a festive touch to the quilt, making it a lively and eye-catching creation. The inclusion of a super soft minky backing ensures comfort and coziness, enhancing the quilt's overall appeal.
Yesenia's journey as a maker is just beginning, and her early achievements highlight her potential for growth and creativity. By immersing herself in the world of sewing, she has discovered a fulfilling outlet for her talents, passion and a way to support her family.
