    A fellow QB member saw my question last week about the Grace frame and quilting machine and mentioned that she had a similar set up for sale in my area. My husband and I drove up to look at it yesterday and came home with it!
    It is a B-Line frame, made in Canada with a Husquvarna Viking Mega Quilter and a Grace Stitch Regulator.
    Set it up tonight and I've already made terrible free motion with it. Works like a charm. I bought some cheater fabric as I thought it would help give me some lines to practice on and areas to do FMQ in.
    So, I'll be spending a lot of time in the basement getting acquainted with my new toy. I'm excited!

    That's great, Watson. Have fun with your new toy. Cheater fabric is a good choice to play with. Already "put together".

    Watson, that is awesome news! I can't wait to see the magic you create--your quilting on rental and your DSM was shown your hidden talent and now it will just be exploding off those quilts! Congrats!

    Have fun!

    Well! I'm envious and excited for you. What a great toy to expand your quilting - can't wait to see what you produce.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
