Gudrun Erla, the designer and owner of GE Designs was born and raised in Iceland. She started quilting at the age of 23. After owning and running quilt shops in her home country and designing patterns along side it, quilting brought her to Minnesota in 2003. Since then Gudrun has been designing full time, publishing patterns and books from her home office in Chaska, MN.
Gudrun loves to take traditional ideas and put a little bit of a modern spin on them. Her “quilt as you go” as well as patterns for precuts have been very popular, with easy to follow instructions and quick assembly and finishing. All her patterns are geared toward today’s quilt makers, easy and innovative with a modern touch.
