I got a great and unexpected gift over the holidays. My Quilt friend Beth Donaldson had an old Grace quilt frame that she did not have room to use. She gave it to me! Thanks again Beth!!
In order to use it I had to start by doing a bit of reorganizing so I could find space to set it up ( it is 8 feet wide). I got it all assembled and in a while I will try to load a quilt onto to it and see if I can adapt from quilting in a hoop to quilting in a frame. If nothing else I know it will be handy or basting a quilt.
I have a “small” stack of tops that are waiting to be photographed and packed for storage while they wait to be quilted. I could choose one of these to try out the new frame.
Here is a stack of “scrap” batting that I could join to make a full piece.
I don’t have backing fabric in mind so I will have to look at what I have and see if anything strikes me and then read the instructions to see how to get a quilt on the frame. I am thinking of this top so I will look for something that will match.
Not sure when that will happen but I will keep you updated.
