    BIG NEWS! My friend Brenda Yirsa had two quilts selected to be exhibited at the 2011 International Quilt Festival/Houston in the annual IQA fall Judged Show, Quilts: A World of Beauty. It's true! And this year’s jury had the difficult task of narrowing a field of 652 entries to 380 finalists. So wow! They picked 2 of hers! Aren't they both beautiful! Congradulations Brenda!
