Mandala's Large Spirographs

I've been busy working on the Mandala Quilt, as you can see I have started to add the Large Spirograph borders.  It seems like this quilt will be getting harder and harder to photograph from here on out.  One reader suggested I make the second border of diagonals run in the opposite direction.  That was a neat idea, but I'd already latched on to this one.  Pick one of the bright diagonal stripes.  See how you can follow that stripe all the way across both borders through to the other side of the quilt?  That took some doing, yet I believe the results are worth it.  These large diagonal runs should become even more pronounced when I add the quilting.

This is looking amazing. Making the border stripes run the way you did is so clever and must have been really tricky to plan. How big will the quilt be when it's finished? I have an idea that you may have said about 102" square?
