R E S P E C T is Block #21
Can you believe we are on Clue #21! R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Love this block and the song is great too. Really interesting story on the song. Make sure to check that out on the Clue. The Block, I specifically designed to go with Oh, Pretty Woman from Clue #21. You will be using your remnant fabric left over from Clue #10.

For this Clue, if you are running tight/short on Light-Med, make sure to read the tip on making use of your remnant strip from the Triangles. You would trim down , cutting down that large strip to get those last few Diamond(s). This will get you the most out of your fabric. You can also check your remnant bag.
|Take your time with Unit A as you must make sure you have the proper Side Triangles in the proper place|
|Unit B is the easy... who would have through we would have said that back on Clue #1|
|Unit C is a standard Diamond Triangle Unit|
|Before you trim down, triple check you have your side triangles correct!|
|When you get organized, make sure you are labeling and cutting them correctly. Pay close attention to Unit B, you are only trimming the left side.|
|We are making 9 of the same diamond shape. Take your time.|
|I would suggest marking that 1/4" line on Unit B|
|Take you time with the trim down, as this isn't one we do often. |
