I chopped off the top of the teatowel at my son's suggestion (too much open space) and added lettuce, bluebrrerries, corn, and tomatoes! Crab, corn and "August" tomatoes (lush, vine-ripened) - summer in DELMARVA (Delaware, Maryland and Virginia)! My favorite foods!!
Is this finished? It's 31"x31"; a wall hanging? Should it be larger to be a picnic quilt?
I want to keep the focus on the idea of crabs (my favorite food). I tried adding cucumbers; the color in the photo is washed out but the clarity of the cucumbers goes well with the other colors. I also considered the blue batik with small "bubbles".
I also considered some beachy fabrics which just didn't seem right.
I am ready to leave it on the design wall for a while. I would appreiciate any suggestions.
