Artisans' Guild Artist Gretchen Brooks continues to win!

The Thomas Center Center Slice Quilt
Evening Flight Quilt Wall Hanging.

Gretchen, participated with several other quilters in making a very unique quilt, "The Thomas Center Slice Quilt", which won third place for Collaborative Quilts in the Quilt Fest of Jacksonville, which takes place September 24-26. Her wall hanging, "Evening Flight" won first place in the Small Art Quilts in the same show.

Her group of quilters from the Alachua County Day Guild, worked from a photo of the Thomas Center and each person interpreted one small section which were stitched together to form the overall quilt which is about 6 feet long. They graciously donated this lovely guilt pictured above to The Thomas Center where it will be hanging in the conference room starting Oct. 1. After the shows run and next time you are visiting the Thomas Center make sure you check out this amazing cooperative art work.
