Jen started sewing in 1993 on a tan Singer sewing machine. Her mother taught the basics. Jen made her first quilt in 1993.

Fast forward a bit: Jen earned a Bachelor of Science in Apparel Design in 1998 from Louisiana State University. By 2003, she found herself quilting and sewing for her own company, ReannaLily Designs. She invented, trademarked and produced the popular Seamingly Accurate Seam Guide. The website and company was launched in 2007.

Jen currently has four sewing and quilting books available and is a national lecturer/teacher describing the easy machine applique techniques in her books.

As longarm quilter, Jen has quilted by machine for years and in 2015 launched ReannaLily Quilts, a longarm quilting service for the public.

As a military spouse, Jen has traveled the world gathering inspiration and ideas for designs and patterns. From Korea, and China, Japan, to North America, England and France, she has found many cultural and historical elements to guide her interest and creativity.

ReannaLily Designs Headquarters is currently located in Helotes, TX.

Generally, the style showcases contemporary bright projects based in traditional construction methods. Techniques adapt fast methods to solve more lengthy construction problems.

  2. Hi Jen: Just ran across your sight thru Pinterest. You probably don’t remember me but you were a member of our Southwest Ok Quilt Guild when you were in Altus, Ok. Long time ago I know. So glad to see that you have blossomed and are doing so well (love your suggestions on fmq clamshells). I am quilting an antique baby quil of clam shells and that is what led me to your site. Our guild is still thriving althoo we could use more like you to stimulate us. lol Best wishs, Jackie Hubert Btw, I still have and use the seam guide that I bought from you.

  4. I totally loved your program at the Colorado Valley Quilt Guild. You were a delight and the program just right for our guild. I too have been sewing since my Barbie days. Every time I got a new outfit (made by my mother) Barbie got a similar one. And because I didn’t like zippers or buttons, I would just pop Barbie’s head off. I learned much from your delightful tales. Thank you. Janice
