Hexagons Made Easy – Trunk Show If you are in Albuquerque, New Mexico and if you are in Hip Stitch Sewing Loung & Quilt Shop, you will want to check out the Hexagons Made Easy Trunk Show! Suzanne was kind enough to let me share a few of her pictures from her shop.   And one of my favorites, certainly one of the favorites at guild presentations is the Reversible Hexagon Quilt.  No binding is needed when you use the “reversible” technique in Hexagons Made Easy.  Pretty neat trick, right?  It is also a perfect Quilt-As-You-Go design, too.   Again, a huge thank you to Hip Stitch in Albuquerque for hosting the trunk show! If you are a shop and would like more information on hosting the show, please click this ReannaLily Designs link.   Tell a...

Boerne Quilt Lecture

Boerne Quilt Lecture

on Jun 24, 2014 in Blog, blogging others, quilt, trunk show | 2 comments

  So it turns out, I make crazy faces while I talk about quilts…. Recently, I was asked to give my Books Trunk Show lecture to the  Cibolo Creek Quilt Guild in Boerne, Texas.  Samples from Deploy That Fabric, Learn to Sew Easy Curves and Hexagons Made Easy were showcased.  We talked technique; we talked color; we talked shapes.  It was fun.   I rolled up with 3 large suitcases full of samples to share.  Probably about 50-something projects. The guild has been around for about a year or so.  They are new, growing guild north of San Antonio.  Fair Oaks Ranch/Boerne area along the “I-10 Corridor”.   That quilt above is from Learn To Sew Easy Curves.  It is easily my most favorite quilt in that book.  Anna Maria Horner fabric assortment + recycled Army digital uniforms.  It is scrappy and bold and patriotic and contemporary all at the same time. Then I thought you might also like to see these goofy-faced pictures…   You know what is also great?  Weird Al Hair.   Just sayin….    I love Weird Al, by the way.  I wish Karaoke and Rock Band would have the Weird Al options to sing the songs with his lyrics instead of the artist original lyrics.  That’d be sweet.  The Weird Al plug-in or something.  But I digress…   Back to the quilts – HUGE thanks to Cibolo Creek Quilters for having me out.  I had a blast and cannot wait to see what you’ve made with the facing techniques.

Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Workshop

Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Workshop

on Feb 27, 2014 in art gallery fabrics, book, classes, Hexagons Made Easy, trunk show | 0 comments

I cannot thank the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild enough for having me out.  That meeting was an absolute blast.  The guild members were so friendly and ambitious. The Get Published lecture was first up, then the Hexagons Made Easy Wall Hanging Workshop.  The guild meeting was actually moved to a Saturday and to a larger venue to accommodate the workshop. If you follow me on Instagram, reannalilydesigns_jen, you may have already seen a few of these pics. Each of the workshop students received a fabric kit.  There’s plenty of fabric in the kit to learn the technique, make the project OR learn the technique and branch off to create something totally unique.  The workshoppers embraced that and made some of the most innovative little 30″ square quilts.  With their permission- check out some of these cool works-in-progress: We have purple.  We have blue.  We have floral.  We have stripes.  …. AND most importantly we have HEXAGONS!  Look at ’em go! I cannot wait to see some of the finished mini quilts.  Thanks again for having me out! If your guild or shop is interested in the lecture or workshop, please see this link for more information.  Have quilts.  Will travel. *Fabric used in the kits showcased is by Art Gallery Fabrics.

HEXAGONS MADE EASY – Launch Party!!!

HEXAGONS MADE EASY – Launch Party!!!

on May 1, 2013 in Blog, book, Hexagons Made Easy, SAMQG, trunk show | 0 comments

This weekend was the LAUNCH party for Hexagons Made Easy!  It was a hoot.  Friends from the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild stopped by for the festivities.  I had the party organized in to food, Sew Station, Door Prize Station, Charity Quilt Station and Trunk Show Station.    Here’s some pics from the evening: Food I wanted to have foods that were shaped like hexagons.  Turns out- that is kinda tricky.  I thought I could have a build-your-own taco bar with the tortillas cut into hexagons.  I later realized, I’d really like to eat the whole tortilla.  :/  I did find some crackers and some oyster crackers, but my favorite was having the kids help add hexagon fondant to the cupcakes.  Edible markers gave us a few stitching lines.  Mmmm…. the roundest hexagons ever… mmmmmm….. buttercream…..  What were we talking about?  Oh yes, the party- Sew Station My plan was to let my guests take a turn at the Hexagons Made Easy facing technique, one easy-peasy hexagon at a time.   I had the step-by-step directions mounted on a foam core board for self guided learning on this super easy method.  Huge thanks to MODA who provided a couple Honeycomb precuts for the event.  Those were a big hit and a serious time savor for all things hexagons. Charity Quilt Station Once the hexagons were created, I wanted to have a “something” to do with the single finished shapes.  I set up a charity quilt station.  The guests take their hexagon and pin it onto a patterned background sheet.  Think-= Pin The Tail On The Donkey for quilters.  Anywhere the hexagon was placed is where it will be stitched down.  It got quite hilarious since the more methodical guests were really planning where to place the shapes, when really, the next person may move the shape or put theirs on in some crazy fashion.  It was very fun, I think.  The Charity Quilt will be quilted by a San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild Member, Kim, and donated to Jeremiah’s Hope Rescue Shelter and Camp in Ukraine.  SAMQG member, Kelly, works closely with that group and will have the finished baby quilt very soon. As the jokes about hexagon placement went on...

A big thanks to All About Quilts!  The trunk show looked fabulous at the front of their store.  With each business endeavor I learn new things- for this one I learned to not book the event until you find out what time the NCAA Football game is.  =)  Turns out the K-State game was at 2:30p, right in the middle of the book signing.  We didn’t have a ton of traffic, but I am grateful to all those who did make it out.  Thank you for supporting the book and the shop! The trunk show is headed to the Houston Quilt Market for October and will then travel to two quilt shops, Loving Stitches in the Fayetteville NC/Fort Bragg area and Colonial Quilts in Savannah GA/Ft Stewart area for the month of November.  Stay tuned for more information on those shows.

Yep.  You read that right.  I’m going to have my very own booth at the International Quilt Market in Houston this fall (2011) Booth #2048!! As a result, I’m sewing quite alot to bring the best new samples of my work to the show.  Man.  That is alot alot of sewing!  Thank goodness I really like to sew.  =)  And design patterns.  And make diagrams.  And make brochures.  And blog about all of it.  Hum…. and here I thought I’d just grow-up and become a designer and design.  (Common misconception, from what I gather.) So lets take a gander at the latest quilt. I remade the cover quilt from Deploy That Fabric, Triangle Jubilee.  The original orange, Denyse Schmidt fabric quilt with be with C&T Publishing, which means I’ll need one of my very own.  I’m noticing that I need it for the traveling trunk show, as well.  Wait til you hear where the trunk show is headed next- Ft Riley KS! (Hi Tiki!)  All About Quilts. We’ll have a book signing event up there and I’ll have all the details on the blog, soon.  For now, clear your calendar for October 8th. Back to the quilt:  The fabrics in this new quilt are by Studio E. It’s pale blue, pale green, forest-y, aviary, and really good looking with that fabulous green recycled military uniform fabric.  This one is a BDU and is more the “old” camo. – just like the original book cover quilt. Of course it’s not pressed or quilted, yet.  I’ll be quilting it on Saturday while 1/2-watching college football…. except for when LSU v Oregon comes on, then I’ll be whole-watching football. Here’s a picture of the original, so if you are at market or just want to see the orange quilt…   {{I love orange!}}   Here it is: More sewing-y delicious pictures, coming soon!  Stay tuned.
