Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This quilt was made by Madeline and her mother Wendy. Madeline is a 19 year old mother and had to flee her home in the summer of 2020 to avoid the gangs that were threatening to kill her mother and sell her into sex trafficking. It was a desperate move and we were afraid Madeline and her family would not find a place to live.
Gratefully with donations from One Common Thread donors we were able to get them relocated and build a new house for them far away from the threats of the gangs. Since then Madeline and her mom have to travel 8 hours by bus to turn in their quits and get more supplies.
high-quality thread, cotton fabrics for quilt top, minky fabric backing.
46" x 54"
