I am inspired by their drive, by their vision, by how hard they work to make their dreams come true.
This past March while teaching in Portland, Oregon I met Gudrun Erla of GE Designs and was instantly smitten --- what’s not to love? She is a Minnesota girl ((Via Iceland!)) and we had an instant bond!
The woman is a dynamo, and can run circles….or marathons, literally, around us all! And she is such a ball of fun.
Here’s Gudrun leading the Quiltmaker Shuffle at Spring Quilt Market!
When she asked me to participate in her 10 year Anniversary Celebration, I agreed ---Of course! Here’s to 10 years living in the states, 10 years of great designs doing what she loves – and wishes for many more.
Here’s to independent working women making it happen wherever they are.
The hours are long, the work is hard, it’s not always a glamor job – but we are doing it because we are following our passion!
So here is what is going on:
GIVEAWAYS FOR 10 DAYS!
You can win this quilt!
Very cool round quilt, straight from Gudrun’s Book:
Fast & Furious Home!
You can win the book too!
I am in love with this wall quilt from the book –Illusion!
What’s the Illusion? It’s made with a striped fabric, not strings! Hahaha! Fooled you!
How about a gorgeous FQ bundle of Gudrun’s Nordic inspired Fabrics??
