2016 RSC November Week 1, RSC Wonky Stars Block Quilt Top, Doll Quilt, Solavore Sport Solar Oven
Pictured are a two yellow themed scrappy pot holders to add to my collection. Also a doll quilt.
I should have finished my RSC Column/Row Quilt, but I decided to make more wonky stars blocks for a quilt with a layout of 4x5 blocks. I think I'll add a skinny inner border and a colorful outer border to both quilts. To see what others made with their RSC scraps, go here Saturday morning.
I bought a new toy, a Solavore Sport Solar Oven. Two pots with lids and a thermometer came in the box. There are several YouTube video clips available on the internet that show how people use them to cook.
While the solar oven was out in the sun warming up, I mixed up a Devil's Food Cake using a mix. When I went to put the cakes in the oven, it had reached 220 degrees. Yah!
Though the temperature dropped while I placed the cake pans in the oven, it warmed back up to about 220 degrees in 20 minutes. Ninety minutes later a tooth pick came out clean.
Here is my cake, baked by the sun, with a milk chocolate frosting. It was delicious. Success!
