Artist Statement

Ideal Workflow

Machine Quilted with computerized and fmq.

The arrangement of this modern quilt is 100% inspired by Nancy Purvis Studio. Her inspiration art piece
was used with permission from the artist.
The art is digitized and quilted on layered faux suede and cotton. The faux suede is then cut away to
reveal the perfect-ish white rings. Much like a planned workday with a couple bright blue suede treats.
Also, much like a workday, there’s a few rings of irregular, free-motion quilted aqua details to keep the
entire piece interesting and unexpected.
The background digital quilting design is by Quiltable.com.

Jen Eskridge Ideal Workflow

Jen started sewing in 1993 on an old, tan 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.
