One thing that the COVID-19 isolation created was a huge need to get together with some long-time quilting friends. The Undercover Quilters has been going strong for at least 25 years. We've seen each others' kids grow up, get married and have their own kids. Some of us have moved. Some divorced. Some of our kids have been divorced. Some are just about to get married. Through it all, most of us are still making quilts and still trying to see each other as often as we can.
Once the isolation and restrictions lifted, and we all got vaccinated, we started meeting once a month for a day of sewing and friendship. Here's a picture of us in June 2021. I'm so thankful that the group still includes me, even though I've moved away from the Portland, OR area several times. And it was so nice to see them all again.
Here we are:
I hope you all have good friends like I do!
