Stop! In the Name of Love... Clue #8!

Clue # 8 is Stop! In the Name of Love.    One of my top 5 favorite songs of my youth!  Love this song and this block is a lot of fun.  This block is a bit less challenging than the last few.  We will still need to take our time, but we will only be making 3 units, two of them are 2-Patch Units.  We will need to mark some of our seams, but overall this Block should come together pretty easily for you! Stop! In the Name of Love!  Both of the versions together!
