The professional configurable quilting frame
The Grace Continuum II Machine Quilting Frame
For over 30 years, the Grace Company has produced some of the finest machine–quilting frames available. Our popular 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. We’ve taken the bulky ratcheting system and updated it 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.

Quilt Frame Features
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.
New Racheting System
The ratcheting system has been fully integrated into the Continuum II, and has quick-toggle locks for immediate adjustments as needed.
SURETRACK DUAL–WHEEL SYSTEM
This smooth gliding track system enhances stitch quality, accuracy, and carriage motion.
Conveniently lock your machine motion into either back and forth, or side to side motion. Perfect for straight lines.
No matter what floor your frame is on, these feet are an easy way to make sure it's level and balanced.
Adjust the depth of your work area to match your quilting frame. Get closer when working on short–arm quilting machine, or expand your space for larger patterns with a long–arm.
Height–adjustable legs let you work at the level that is most comfortable to you.
Conveniently roll all the layers of your quilt with the take–up rail hand–wheel. This advances the fabric to the next section of your project for quilting.
The batting rail (or fourth rail) accessory is a convenient way to manage and hold your batting layer. Keep your batting organized and off the floor by rolling it on this rail.
This convenient accessory eliminates the need to constantly stop and adjust your take–up rail. The more you quilt, the more space is taken up on the take–up rail in the throat of your machine. This normally means you have to watch your space closely, and adjust the take–up rail higher when the quilt fabric starts rubbing between it and your machine. This idler rail solves that problem by letting the fabric collect on the take up–rail at a higher position, so you don't need worry about adjusting your take–up rail anymore!
Note: The idler rail accessory will only work with longarm or midarm quilting machines that have a larger throat space.
Speed Control and Handles
The Speed Control replaces the foot pedal on a small–arm quilting machine, and lets you adjust the stitching speed with the simple turn of a dial. A convenient on/off button is used start and stop stitching. An top–carriage is also included when you specify that you're purchasing the Continuum II frame for use with a short–arm machine. Please check the Speed Control compatibility list; and if needed, call us with any questions at 800-401-8151.
Table Insert Panels Included
Add a convenient work surface to your Q-Zone Queen or Hoop-Frame with these table inserts! The table inserts are a necessary accessory for quilters wanting to work with pantographs from the back of the frame. These are also needed for use with the Grace Company Plastic Pattern Perfect™ templates.
ALSO GREAT WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF OTHER MACHINES
The modular design of the Continuum II quilting frame lets you use it with many different quilting machines! The frame has an adjustable depth, so you can change the work–space and quilt comfortably with a long–arm or a domestic short–arm machine. When you order the Continuum II frame for use with a short–arm machine, an top–carriage with handles will be provided, as well as a speed–control. Please specify which quilting machine you will be using when you purchase your Continuum II frame.
