About Us


Welcome to GE Designs


We’re thrilled you’re here! We are a digital one-stop shop for everything quilting. Our founder 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 the way, quilting brought her to Minnesota in 2003. Since then Gudrun has been designing full time, publishing patterns and books from just west of the Twin Cities.

Gudrun loves to take traditional ideas and put a little bit of a modern spin on them. All her patterns and books are geared toward today’s quilt makers, easy and innovative with a modern touch. She has published patterns and books as well as designed groundbreaking tools for quilting for years, including the best selling Stripology rulers.
