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 make the process easy! Click the button below, select your options, then get your quilt top to us via shipping or appointment. 

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

Our Edge-to-Edge Designs

We’ve curated a collection of high quality edge-to-edge designs that are attractive and sturdy, and come in a variety of styles. We also offer most patterns in both regular and dense densities

It’s our opinion that most edge-to-edge designs out there are fairly terrible, so we’ve pared 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.

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 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 Backing Fabrics

Don’t have backing fabric for your quilt top? No problem! 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.

Want to use your own backing? That works, too! Just make sure your fabric is the right size and is as square as possible

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

  • Our pricing works out to about 1.5 cents per square inch.
  • 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.
  • We aim to keep the quilting pattern from extending past the edge of your quilt top. This way, your threads don’t become unsecured when trimmed, and you are also able to bind your quilt by wrapping around the quilt if you so desire.
