Today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Shell.

I love walking along the beach looking for shells. I can spend hours looking for that perfect shell or sand dollar. This got me thinking about the perfect quilt. I have been seeing some of the quilts that were rejected for QuiltCon on Instagram and they are incredible. It makes me wonder if my quilting is good enough. I do not quilt to put my work in a juried show or even the county fair, my quilts are for me or family and friends. They do not judge or seem to care if my points do not always match or if my blocks are slightly wonky. They love a gift that is personal and meant for them. That is the reason that I quilt, besides the fact that I love fabric and have for a long time.

Today’s quilt is Elements and features the color Shell. It is modern and very different than something that I would make, but I am beginning to step out of my comfort zone and I would probably enjoy making this quilt. Shell is a light peachy pink. It could be used as a neutral in your background or as a focus fabric if you were looking to make a quilt featuring very soft colors.
