Today is my special day to help Gudrun Erla celebrate 10 years in the United States, the 10th anniversary of her quilt design company, GE Designs and the release of her newest book, Fast & Furious Home. Don’t miss the great give-aways below too.
I’ve been trying to remember when I first came across Gudrun’s work, and I can’t remember if I met her at Quilt Market one year or if it was this adorable Sweet Trimmings wall hanging tutorial.
Being last on this blog hop tour, meant I got to read all of the posts from the other bloggers and came across this great interview that our friends at the Fat Quarter Shop did with Gudrun at Spring Quilt Market:
Then I discovered that Gudrun used to be a physical education teacher, but what caught my attention and made me laugh was the Quiltmaker Shuffle that she organized:
Gudrun is famous for her quilt-as-you-go patterns. Let’s take a closer look at some of the projects in her new Fast & Furious Home book:
The first on my list to make once my book arrives will be the Diamond Charmer Table Topper. I love the unique shape and the design.
Quick links to Gudrun’s homes on the Web:
I will be giving away a copy of Gudrun’s new book as well as these four patterns:
I’ll select two winners randomly next Tuesday morning, August 20. To enter, leave a comment below answering, Have you made any quilts using the quilt-as-you-go method?
Also, be sure to leave a comment on any of the Gudrun’s party blog posts for a chance to win the cover quilt:
