Longarm Quilting

What is Longarm Quilting?

A quilt is made of 3 layers:

  • A pieced quilt top
  • Batting in the middle
  • Backing fabric 

Longarm quilting secures all of these layers together with a strong, decorative design spread evenly across the entire quilt.

If you’ve inherited an unfinished quilt top, this service will turn it into a completed quilt!

How Do I Order?

We work to make the process easy! Choose a size below, select your options, then send us your quilt top. We’ll ship it back to you within 2-4 weeks.

Important: We have common sizes listed below to make ordering easy, but please note that the size cutoffs are ultimately based on square inches. You can calculate the square inches by multiplying the width of your quilt top by its length.

If you’re not sure exactly how big your quilt is, please order the next size up from your best guess. We’ll refund you the difference as soon as we receive and measure the quilt if it turns out to be smaller.

Our Process

Here is some more information about how we do things for those who are interested. Please call, text, or email us with any questions you have at (502) 210 6291 or support@happydancequilting.com

  • By default, we don’t trim your quilt down after quilting due to the wide range of preferences for how individual quilters like this done. We may remove excess batting for shipping purposes, however.
  • It’s our opinion that most edge-to-edge designs out there are fairly terrible, so we’ve curated our selection down to a manageable amount of designs we believe are consistently great choices rather than overwhelming you with many bad ones. We tend to prefer designs that stitch evenly across the quilt without drawing your eye away from your piecing.
  • If you’d like to provide your own pattern for us in the form of a .pat file, you can email it to us or upload it as part of your order.
  • We choose thread colors that show up as evenly and subtly as possible across the quilt. This way, the quilting design doesn’t distract from the piecing by being too bright or by only showing up strongly in certain sections.
  • Our quilting is done by automated machinery, so the design you choose will be exactly what is stitched on your quilt.
  • If you’d like to use our fabric for the backing of the quilt, we have a small selection of high quality Moda backing fabrics for you to choose from. Our pricing works out to 20% off and we only use extra wide bolts, so this is often a very cost effective option.
