Rainbow Mandala Stitch A Long

The members of World of Charity Stitching are currently stitching these pretty circles, called Mandala (Rainbow).  They are a free chart from Stickeule .  Renate, who is very generous, offers a variety of free charts.  Our group has stitched some of her other charts and the squares have been made into beautiful quilts for seniors.

The members were asked to stitch these charts using whatever color they desired and as you can see, there is a nice variety of color combinations.  The squares are still coming in and one of our newest members even stitched two of them.
