The Quilted Clamshell eBook
Introducing The Quilted Clamshell!
The Quilted Clamshell is Jen’s fourth book and is entirely self-published!
The Quilted Clamshell is a collection of over 70 quilting designs to fit into the class clamshell shape. This reference book is a guide to developing your own unique designs using three simple variables. Sketch, plan, and quilt with confidence!
The book is a method to develop quilting designs. As a longarm quilter, time is invested in researching perfect designs to compliment customer quilts. In that research, I noticed there seemed to be a gap in designs where the clamshell was concerned. I doodled and drew as research for my own Glam Clam project. After some time, I noticed I approached the design process in the same manner: manipulating three variables. The Quilted Clamshell was born.
Unlike my other books, The Quilted Clamshell is entirely self-published. The printed book is available through Amazon and as an ebook through ReannaLily Designs shop.
In the next couple weeks, I’ll share more photos and concepts from the book. (The blog posts will all be linked here on the product page.)
I hope The Quilted Clamshell?is useful to you and your quilting projects!
A friend asked me if any of my books are on iTunes. I have to say, I’d never thought about that. So I didn’t have an answer for her.
After a quick search, I found that I am on iTunes. That got the wheels turning- what about the other e-reader stores? Well – yep. Yep. I’m there. Deploy that Fabric is on every outlet and Learn to Sew Easy Curves is on iTunes, too. WOW. iTunes. Me. Metallica. Cowboy Mouth. Beastie Boys. George Strait. Freakonomics Podcast. We are all there. Of course… those others knew they were in iTunes from the get-go, and well, they are famous and all. Me, welp, I love surprises!!!!

Learn To Sew Easy Curves
Learn To Sew Easy Curves is here!
Circles are a huge trend in modern quilting and a staple in traditional quilt designs. This new book focuses on the circle and curved shapes to make fun QUICK projects. Best part- NO CURVED PIECING. There is not a notch to match or fabric to ease. The technique featured in the book is completely based on adding facings to shapes and machine applique’ing them to your project.
What a huge time saver!
What a great way to use up some of your “I cannot think of why I bought this” scraps and yardages. Those pieces that you’d hate to throw out but don’t love, can easily find a home as your shapes’ facings. Win. Win.
The book will be on sale today and over the next week I’ll be able to give you more in-depth blog posts on some of the projects in the book.
All books ordered from ReannaLily Designs will be signed.
Wholesale: This book is published by Leisure Arts and retails for $14.95.

Seamingly Accurate Seam Guide
Tired of having inaccurate seams? Is your sewing machine covered in masking
tape for your wider hemming and sewing needs? Wish you had a REAL guide
beyond the metal throat plate? Do you have a metric machine and need
an “inches” guide for your new patterns?
Seamingly Accurate? Seam Guide
Scroll Down to see the INSTALL Video
Seamingly Accurate? is a new product allowing you to sew hems, apply
trims, quickly make half-square-triangles and more without permanently
altering your sewing machine! This product has been designed by me,
owner and founder of ReannaLily Designs. I found, in my commissioned
sewing endeavors, that I really needed more sewing guide lines. It occurred
to me, that you might also.
Make FAST Half Square Triangles with the Seamingly Accurate??Check out this super quick how-to for half square triangles:
Apply trim to the edge of any stitched project without pinning or measuring. This is a speedy method:
Seamingly Accurate? has been an editor’s pick for “Best Half Square Triangle” method in a few different magazines. And the guide was even offered as a sweepstakes prize for Vogue Pattern Magazine. Click the magazines to read more about the article.
Seamingly Accurate? was also included in QuiltyBox’s monthly subscription box. Hooray!
How To Install the Seamingly Accurate? Seam Guide
1. Peel off the backing of Seamingly Accurate? to expose the repositionable adhesive.
2. Apply Seamingly Accurate? to your sewing machine over and around the throat
plate, lining up the black “needle line” of Seamingly Accurate? with your needle as shown.
Use any straight lines on your machine such as the edge of the throat plate to help you line up your Seamingly Accurate? straight on your machine. Use a ruler to help you. Remember that you can remove and reposition it many times if needed. If you have an accessory case that opens or a removable table, or free-arm bed, make a cut in the Seamingly Accurate? so you can open your accessory case or remove your arm or table without removing Seamingly Accurate?. You can position Seamingly Accurate? any way you like.
3. Using a craft knife, cut around your metal throat plate and bob-bin case. Remove this piece of paper, or you can mark where you want to cut with a pencil, remove Seamingly Accurate? from your machine, cut with scissors, and reposition Seamingly Accurate? on the machine. If you have an accessory case that opens or a removable table, or free-arm bed, make a cut in the Seamingly Accurate? so you can open your accessory case or remove your arm or table without removing Seamingly Accurate?.
4. Now your guide is fitted to your sewing machine and can be easily used.
Your throat plate position will vary depending on your sewing machine brand.
ReannaLily Designs recommends removing that portion, in case you need access
to that pesky bobbin case during your sewing afternoon.
