Block Contest far

Here is a picture of my challenge quilt block for the Sisters Quilt Show.  I'm not 100% sure that I'm done with it at this point.  Actually, I know that it still needs to be trimmed to 9 1/2 inches.

The body of the fish is sequins and the splash is made from beads.  The head, eye, tail, and fins are appliqued, and the "water" at the bottom is just seamed to the background fabric.  There is a lot of embellishment with all those little sequins, but it still looks a little plain beyond the fish itself.  I'm gonna leave it up on the wall for a while and see if any other ideas for embellishments strike me.
