It’s all bubbles and gum drops (you do know that’s what Rubber Duckies eat, right?) here at Tucked Away Farm as we celebrate Gudrun Erla and her 10 year anniversay, both for her business GE Designs and for living in the US. Congrats Gudrun! And congrats to us for having such a talented and fun, sharing and fun, and caring – and did I say “fun”? – quilter in our midst.
To celebrate, Gudrun is giving away a lot of great goodies. (More below.)
And I just had to get in on the act. (More below.) ( Yes, a Quilting Rubber Duckie is involved!)
Of course video is what I do, so I clicked over to QNNtv.com and searched for “Gudrun” to find and share the videos Mark Lipinski and I shot for Quilt Out Loud! at her house a few years ago. I forgot about some others!
This is an interview I did at International Quilt Market with Gudrun back in 2011, showing off one of her fabric lines for Red Rooster.
That loveable nut Lipinski worked his charm on Gudrun and her family who were in from Iceland at the time, as he showed up for one of his signature doorknocks on Quilt Out Loud!. Watch Mark’s surprise doorknock (available only to QNNtv.com subscribers.)
Then I joined Gudrun in her sewing room to make a project using her quilt-as-you-go technique. I wanted to stay and sew all day!
The table runner we made is from Fast & Furious Holiday. You can find it here.
For more instruction, here’s Gudrun’s quilt-as-you-go method from her web site.
As for my latest new fave Gudrun find, the bottom left argyle-like quilt jumped at me. Love it!
