This dotted kolam was an inspiration from Mrs.Mangala. http://www.ikolam.com/node/11598
The top one is without the extensions, and the other one with extensions. The idea of using red/yellow colored-dots comes from Mrs.Rajam. I learned that if I continue using my coffee table to make such kolams, I better stick with smaller designs than this one, as I barely could fit it within the breadth of the table. Suggestions to improve are welcome.
