Picture the Caribbean. Soft sandy beaches, warm winds blowing through palm trees and crystal-clear waters stretching as far as the eye can see. That’s the Eastern Caribbean cruise experience. Enjoy the calm waters around the islands, and snorkel, swim and sail your way through engaging activities. Relax on world-famous beaches, cool drink in hand, for a day of rejuvenation topped off by luxurious shopping. Dive in; the Caribbean is waiting.


The Educator:  Gudrun Erla

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 as well as designing groundbreaking tools for quilting for years, including the best selling Stripology rulers. 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.

The Project: 

We can’t wait to make this beautiful lap size quilt with Gudrun on the cruise.  Kit will be provided.  We will contact you shortly with colorway choices as well as additional fabric if you choose to make the quilt larger, and accessories you may need to make this quilt.  All orders will be made directly through GE Designs.
