Welcome: International Quilt Festival
Quilt festival was born thirty years ago right here in Houston and today, it's the city largest annual convention, filling more hotel rooms and restaurant seats than oil and gas get-togethers. Imagine that! The vision of Karey Bresenhan and the power of quilters makes history year after year.Quilters and quilt lovers, welcome to Second Seating, the visual arts installation that is a fabulous mix of diverse dinner tables and quirky chandeliers all made from found objects, reclaimed materials and recycled packaging from Houston's East End industries.And Second Seating is right next door to Irma's Restaurant. Winner of a 2008 James Beard Foundation American Classics award, Irma is serving a 'Second Seating Lunch Plate Special' through November 7.
