Jen started sewing in 1993 on an old burnt yellow, Harvest Gold, Singer sewing machine.  Her mother taught the basics.  Jen made her first quilt in 1993.  She didn’t use any books or templates, and that poor quilt eventually fell apart.  It was recycled, though, into a curtain, duct taped over a dorm room window.

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.  During that time, Jen also taught quilting at a national crafting store.  The website and company was launched in 2007.

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.

  • Reuse/Recycle textiles

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