Gudrun Erla, the designer and owner of GE Designs is 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 them, quilting brought her to Minnesota in 2003. Since then Gudrun has been designing full time, publishing patterns and books from her home office in Chanhassen, 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. She has published patterns and books on strip quilts for years and designed the best selling Stripology rulers with Creative Grids.

Gudrun has written 21 books, along with her self published books, she has written for Martingale, C & T, Kansas City Star and Leisure Arts. Her patterns have been published in all the major magazines such as American Patchwork and Quilting, Quiltmaker, Fons & Porter’sLove of Quilting and Quilty. She has taped educational classes with both Craftsy and Craft University.

Gudrun travels to teach and lecture both nationally and internationally, year round and escorts quilting tours to Iceland and other destinations.
