A Tribute to Jean Hilton stitches

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

SKU: T-014 Category:

Tribute is an homage to my favorite designer, Jean Hilton, and uses lots of stitches she developed. When I began stitching the model, it struck me that it looked like a formal garden, with the greens, purples and pinks found in a summer garden. The soft colors are surrounded by a cream neutral, and the outside border resembles one of my favorite frame moldings, with loads of beads.

Stitches include waffles, walnetos, Rhodes diamonds, oblong Jessicas, crescent pairs, stacked herringbone, 12 pointed stars, triangle Amadeus, open Amadeus, Amadeus, layered Jessicas, Val’s stitch, herringbone, Rhodes squares, crosses over 4 and loads of beads.

What will you learn?
