Custom Quilts

I truly love making custom quilts. Your requests inspire my creativity!stencil-flower-11 If you don’t see what you’re looking for, Please contact me at barbara@bzuazua.com  to discuss it. I can design any type of motif your heart desires!

The economy is tough and I have been working on this formula to deliver a wonderful, custom designed, high quality product for the lowest price I can afford to offer.

Here’s How It Works:

  • Orders can be made through my Etsy Shop : Click on “Request Custom Item” link on the left side of the page under Shop Info. Or email me at barbara@bzuazua.com
  • Scroll down and use this guide to make your decisions:
    • Layout
    • Motifs, if you want any.
    • Color Palette
    • Size

The quilt can be done in as little as 2 weeks as long as I don’t have too many commitments.  I will give you a time frame when you contact me.

Easy and Affordable Design Choices

1. Choose your Layout

A. Central Motif, Borders and Border Blocks.  Example is a finished special order baby quilt.Central Motif, Border Blocksbaby-bear-2011 

B.  Horizontal Layout with Sashing.  Example shows a silk screened design in each block. Horizonal Layout with Sashingstencil-flower-9

C.  Central Motif with Multiple Borders.  Example is computer generated.

2. Choose a Motif, If you wish

These are a very few of what can be done.  If you don’t see what you want, please let me know.  I can easily draw up whatever you would like.  A motif design is not necessary for quilts like the Irregular Blocks or Strip Quilts.  However, a silk screened or stamped motif over a finished quilt for further design interest is very attractive, as shown in the strip quilt example above.

I will decide whether a motif works best as an applique, silk screened or embroidered design.  Or a combination of any of these.  

Hover over an image for a description name.  I can draw up anything!  Just ask!

A reminder of the strength of feminity; a balance between girly-girl and tomboy.bzuazua-doll2-fancy-pantiesEach doll has long yarn hair, a distinctive jumper dress with a zig-zag hem, heirloom stitched blouse, long hand painted striped legs, and cute boots. If you look under her dress, you’ll see she’s wearing fancy panties and lacey garters!   She even has button joints at her shoulders and thighs and her arms and legs are wired for posing.bzuazua-stand

Each doll has a custom made stand with her name and birthday painted on it.  But she can be removed from the stand and you can seat her comfortably any way you like.

The 12” dolls are just as sweet.

I just streamlined the process and don’t use quite the same detail.  But the dolls have all of the same basic characteristics.  I can adjust the design for you.  Depending on how elaborate you want the doll to be, the base price is $25.
