Happy Memorial Day - Long weekend of quilting

It has been so hot lately, so I stay indoors with my quilts. Last week I started my July 4th quilt with the goal of finishing by July 4th, but looks like I just might have it done for June 4th instead. Paper piecing was so easy! One part I don't like is removing all that paper from the back. My sewing room floor is a mess.
Working on this quilt this weekend made me think about all the soldiers who have fought for our freedom. Think I will make this my Memorial Day quilt too!

Happy Quilting!
