Ahhhh 19--The Ozark Diamond

I know that we have many many new Hillbilly Kinfolk following along now (thanks to Bingo!), so I want to take a moment to explain Thursdays.

Every Thursday we have a new Ahhhhh pattern. Ahhhhh stands for 
"Artistic, Hexotic, Hex-a-long, Hectic Hillbilly Hexies". 
Several kinfolk followers helped me come up with that name, so I combined it all into Ahhhhh.

Our hexagons are English Paper Pieced. If they interest you, I have an English Paper Piecing button up top. You will find how-to's, resources, and all the previous Ahhhh posts. 

Now, onto today's Ahhhh--a couple of weeks ago we had the Ozark Star. You all know that I just love anything having to do with the I am equally in love with this week's Ozark Diamond. (Which appeared in the Kansas City Star on June 20, 1931.

I do wish that I had more of my pretty kaleidoscope fabric--but it's gone for good and forever. I do have some others up my sleeve that I will dig out soon, but for a few weeks I want to wrap up using African fabrics.

So, I present to you my Ozark Diamond ooh la la Elephante'!

You may be out of your kaleidoscope fabric but this one is still very pretty.
