Rituals by the ever creative Dinner at Eight Artists was excellent. Again, seeing the variety in how the theme was interpreted is amazing. No photography allowed, so check out the exhibit on their blog.
I was thrilled to find several series from Twelve by Twelve, an international group of 12 quilt artists who have created an ongoing art challenge for themselves. It was wonderful to discover how each interpreted the theme. I loved seeing the development of each artist over time. Fortunately for you this exhibit allowed photography, so I am able to share with you one of my favorites, the "Orange" theme. Though, admittedly, viewing things in person far surpasses any photographed quilt images. Do follow my link above to learn more about these artists.

SAQA's collection from the Masters 2, along with Sense of Adventure was impressive, of course.
Since I was only at the festival for one day, I focused mostly on exhibits...once I did my volunteer shift at the SAQA booth. Though I did wander the vendor areas briefly, and found some wonderful African fabrics.
