Parking lot quilting bee

Quilters show off the quilt they are raffling off at a quilting show in October.

Social distancing has put a crimp into many activities so, when you can't meet at a friend's home, you have to make due. And the Queen Bees — a subgroup of the Brandywine Valley Quilting Guild — have been setting up in parking lots.

Often the choice of which lot depends on what they feel like eating that day, one said in the Painters Crossing parking lot near Nudy's on Sunday. The Bees have been around for four years, but the larger group had been around for more than 30.

Members of the group agreed that the lockdown has made getting together more difficult, but the parking lots work. COVID-19 has also affected guild meetings and quilting classes. Even they are being done on Zoom.

But the group has been productive. Members began working on a quilt last August that's to be raffled off at a quilt show planned for October in Brookhaven.
