Business offers 'sport of quilting' challenge

As sponsor of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (SOQS), Laird Superfood has created the "The Sport of Quilting Challenge."

The challenge is this: Quilters are inspired to interpret symbols and logos that present Laird Superfoods to the world and how they relate to the "Sport of Quilting."

Sisters-based Laird Superfood products "provide clean, nutrient-dense products for optimal performance and healthy living," the company asserts.

The Laird Superfood shaka symbol (see graphic, page 30)

embodies themes and elements critical to the Laird Superfood Brand essence.

"Hawaii's most well-known hand gesture is also known or referred to as the 'hang loose' sign," said Luan Pham. "Though there is no literal translation or meaning for the shaka, it is most commonly used to convey the aloha spirit as a motion or greeting of thanks."

The individual symbols within this shaka symbol also have meaning.

• First and ring fingers: Squiggly lines are actually sea algae-representing Laird's "trace mineral" source, from calcified sea algae.

• Middle finger: Lightning bolt representing energy.

• Pinky finger: Coconut/palm tree - representing Laird's base ingredient in their creamers and hydration products, coconut milk and coconut water.

Artists are encouraged to explore, interpret, and illustrate the elements of optimal performance, healthy living, sustainable energy and the Sport of Quilting.

The challenge is open to all quilters. Quilt registration is due June 1. All quilts must be entered into the SOQS quilt entry website by 5 p.m., PST, Friday, June 1. Register at www.sistersout The physical quilts must be delivered to SOQS by June 22, to be juried. Location information for physical delivery will be provided to entrants on June 1.

For quilt label, sew or securely attach name of quilt and your name to back of the quilt. Quilt size should be 40 by 40 inches.

All quilts entered into The Sport of Quilting Challenge at Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show will be displayed on Saturday, July 14.

The Best in Show winning quilt will interpret the essence of the Laird Superfood brand: Optimal performance and healthy living. The quilt chosen as "Best in Show" will be awarded a cash prize of $1,000 from Laird Superfood. The quilt will become property of Laird Superfood and travel to events with celebrities, representing Laird Superfood.

Each quilt must include a quilt story or artist's statement of 200 words describing the creation of the work from inspiration and/or concept to final artwork.
