The quilt I want to share is my newly completed Dream Big. Made for my daughter dear for her birthday, the pattern is from Simply with Camille Roskelley: Quilts for the Modern Home. I'm sure you recognize the fabric - Central Park by Kate Spain. I used my daughter's very favorite fabrics from the line, adding some KONA solids to round it out.
The swirly quilting was done by my friend, Darlene of Girton's Quilting. You can't see it very well in these pictures, but the quilting thread is purple.
My recipe is very versatile. It was first given to me by a friend as an appetizer recipe. I've tweaked it to my family's tastes, and have used it both as a dip (great with Frito dippers) and as a side salad. Either way, great for summer!
CORN RELISH DIP
2 cans corn kernels (or fresh corn, cut off the cob!)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tb. each fresh lime juice and lemon juice
1 small onion, minced
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 c. oil
2 Tb. cider vinegar
1 tsp. dry oregano
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate. It's fine to do 1 day before serving.
Just prior to serving, add 4 avocados, chopped.
See you at the Summer Fair!
