A tribute to the legendary Jean Hilton, this project features several “twisty” stitches attributed to the designer.

Teaching objectives:

  • Encourage stitchers to develop an ease and confidence with “twisty” stitches
  • Explore complex and layered stitches
  • Discover several different thread textures

Tribute is filled with stitches developed by Jean Hilton. A center motif of small walnetos is stitched around Rhodes diamonds and waffle stitches, then moves into oblong Jessicas and crescents.
