I am a quilter that loves batiks and paper piecing, so when I saw this gorgeous pattern by Valeri Wells I knew I had to make it.

The thought of showing up at a party with just a bag of chips have you running scared?
Bring this taco dip & impress your friends- it’s simple and delicious. You can make this using many short cuts or go all out – shred your own cheese, use fresh romaine & add some thinly sliced scallions to really show it off. Don’t own a 16” platter?

P.S. Don’t forget the chips
