Circle Medallion Quilt Update #1

Here it is thus far:
I had a great time doing the flying geese. So many geese. I used the no waste method, but that means there are a lot of little steps. Cutting all the squares, marking all the diagonals, pinning, sewing, cutting, pressing, pinning, sewing, cutting, and pressing again. However having a lot of little steps it was easier to run in and do a little between wrangling the kiddos. I probably would have gone a little nutty if I tried to sit down and do all the steps in, say, two large chunks. 
One large border left. I'm going to see how a circle border will look. I do have all those circles left. 
I also stated working on the backing using the left over geese, geese parts, and other border parts.
