I'm always hesitant to critique a block for fear of hurting someone's feelings.... but if they ask, you can be sure I always have an opinion.... But keep in mind it's only my opinion....someone else might see things entirely different.
There are a LOT of really nice things going on with this block... But the theme is Victorian Ladies and there is a lovely image that fits the theme, it is completely overwhelmed by the lace lady on the left.. It is much bigger and stronger and your eye just goes back and forth between the lace lady and dark flower center... Not that the lace lady couldn't be the perfect touch for another block....but not this one...
The ribbon work in the triangle is lovely and the seam across the bottom is delightful and anchors the block perfectly... I don't think the sequin flower is needed where it is. I would move it to the center of the flower cluster on the right.
Now about that angle... I just used some snippets of the lace lady's skirt to create the fan shape to fill the angle and added some of Lisa's ribbon work to the other side of the image frame.... which is ruched ribbon and I do love. You can see I put the sequin flower in place of the dark rose..
Now the image is the main focus.... So I really only made one dramatic change.... the lace lady removal... other than that Lisa was on the right track.
Here are the two blocks together and you can form your own opinion.. and thank you Lisa for offering your block for me to discuss.
And once again that's
