Matahari Mandala

I dont really think of mandalas as doilies, but I suppose they are. This is a real beauty, and deserves a better place than just under a potted plant or as a rug for your favorite guinea pig! The designer takes you through each step of the project with round by round photos. She also includes a photo showing how to block the finished mandala, something she considers a crucial step.
