Continuum II Machine Quilting Frame (8-Foot)
The popular Grace Continuum Frame combined some of the most sought after features into a modular system that’s available for quilters of every level and nearly every sewing machine type. Now the Continuum II has taken the next step. The bulky ratcheting system has been updated with a fine-tuned sleeker internal structure that’s smaller, simpler than and just as strong as its predecessor. The bar height adjustments are also much simpler and more precise. With steel and cast–alloy components, the frame is one of the sturdiest and longest–lasting frames ever designed. This modular frame has many available configurations and accessories. This is a no–baste frame designed to make your quilting projects easier, more convenient, and more beautiful. The frame is available in standard 8-foot or 10-foot sizes.
Configured to meet your needs
The Continuum II Frame can be configured in multiple set–ups and optional accessories, so it will be the perfect fit for you no matter what your quilting requires. Think you might upgrade your machine to a longarm in the future? The Continuum II frame can work with your short or midarm machine now, and then be adjusted for a longarm when you need it.
No-Baste Quilting Rail System
The Continuum II Quilting Frame saves you valuable time by eliminating the ordeal of basting. All the quilt layers are attached to their own rails, and then come together and on to the take–up rail as you quilt. Grace frames use locking ratchet ends on the rails to give you precise control over the tension of your fabric layers.
Innovation on how quilters raise and lower their fabric height with ease lead to an adjustable rail system that locks into place as you raise it. You can lower the rails with the press of just one button. The rail system design allows compatibility with several domestic machines, in addition to all Grace Company Q’nique quilting machines.
Perfect tension was a leading design to our new bungee mounting system. The Continuum II Frame features an adjustable bungee mount rail so quilters can achieve their best tension. In addition, it is easy to use by only needing to pull the bungee to tighten tension and with a press of a button you can release tension.
New Racheting System
The ratcheting system has been fully integrated into the Continuum II, and has quick-toggle locks for immediate adjustments as needed. The system strong due to a metal pin that locks the ratchet and is spring-loaded to allow free movement of rotation and concise positioning.
