If you don't purchase anything else to take home with you from Guatemala, like art or jewelry or a handcrafted bag, (which seriously I don't know how tourists can resist any of these items), you will want to select a beautiful quilt.
Whether it's for a gift or to put on your bed at home, or to hang on a wall for display, these quilts are a work of art. (I would suggest washing by hand or having them dry cleaned, not to toss in the washer and dryer.)
"Never give up. And most importantly, be true to yourself. Write from your heart, in your own voice, and about what you believe in." ~ Louise Brown
"Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it." ~Jesse Stuart
"A writer's job is to take one thing and make it stand for twenty." ~ Virginia Woolf
