light and shadow challenge

'light and shadow' is the theme of the international quilt challenge  for september. after a number of damp squibs, i finally had a rush of blood to the head and finished mine in an hour this afternoon. i can't show you the whole thing until this friday but can show you a few glimpses of the work in progress.



 and i can show you another work in progress - another sea themed piece
 and today's prize acquisition - a reel of plumber's hemp! the chap in the shop it was the first one had had sold since he had started working there (presumably sometime after Armistice Day)

Plumbers hemp? What the plop is that used for? (is it like an early PFE tape?) Looks heavy duty and I'm wondering where you're going with this....intriguing.
