Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Marta made this lovely quilt called School Days. It is one of our very popular scrap quilts. Marta is married and helps support the family by working with One Common Thread. She has there children, Jose, Fernando and Marjorie. Marjorie just celebrated her 9th birthday and is such a doll and helper for her mother. Marta lives in a very clean house and was not technically working with One Common Thread at the beginning. She was worried about asking for work so she secretly started working for another Maker. While in the bordo one day we walked past Martas home and saw her sewing. We did not recognize her so we introduced ourselves. She was so shy and nervous but we welcomed her into our One Common Thread family with open arms. She has been working with her own bank account and under her own name since then. She is an amazing and persevering woman.
