Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Madeline and her mother Wendy's collaboration in creating this scrap EPP quilt is a testament to their shared love for sewing and their commitment to One Common Thread. The quilter's design, composed of diamonds, showcases their creativity and attention to detail.
Living eight hours away from San Pedro Sula, Madeline and Wendy's dedication to their craft is evident in their willingness to travel by bus to drop off completed work and collect new projects. Their steadfastness and commitment ensure a steady income and the ability to support themselves and their family.
The quilt, with its combination of black, white, red, and lighter pinks, is a visual delight. Each fabric scrap tells a story of past projects, making it not only a beautiful piece but also a reflection of their history as makers.
