Gudrun Erla

Gudrun, quilt designer and owner of GE Designs, was born and raised in Iceland. In 2000, she opened the first online quilt shop in Iceland. A year later, she moved her successful venture to a storefront location. Her #1 passion was designing patterns, which were all written in Icelandic at that time. She began translating her patterns into English and created a US based publishing company in early 2003. Later that year, her husband’s career change brought them to Minnesota with their three children.


Her earlier collections include Baskets and Blooms, Destiny, Spice Berry Trails, Amma’s Garden and Journey.


Glow is Gudrun’s latest collection which features a selection of floral, subtle geometric and other soft coordinate patterns. Rich colors of teal, dark olive, chocolate brown, warm apricot and golden tan set the tone for the group.
