Grace Quilting Frame


I bought a Grace quilting frame from The Grace Company. This is the Start Right Queen size, at a very affordable price. They are located in SLC so I saved a bundle on shipping by picking it up ourselves. It went together easy peasy, and I did a couple sample pieces, then put this old quilt top on for my first attempt at a larger quilt.

My Juki works like a dream on the frame, the frame carriage rolls smooth as can be. The set up of putting the backing, batting, and quilt top on is fairly quick and easy. The quilting is fun. I am excited. I have a few quilt tops to finish up!

I have never seen one of these before! You can machine stitch, but this rolls the quilt up tightly as you go? Nice... Isn't it great, the gadgets people invent to make enjoyable things even better? Have a fun rest of your weekend!

What a wonderful blessing. My aunt had an older model and I thought I might get it when she passed but my cousin that handled her affairs had a different idea. I can't wait to see some of your finished work.
Happy stiching.
