Boy Wall Art

I have been meaning to make a little bit more wall art for Silas's room for forever {you can see the room before here}.  I bought this print and then had the colors customized to Silas's bedding.  But it needed something quilty too...  So I finally decided on little quilted pictures in matching black frames.

I cut out his three favorite trucks from Peak Hour by Kellie Wulfsohn for Riley Blake, and fused Heat N Bond Ultra to the back, then trimmed close to the edge.

I then fused it on top of a selection of 1 14" strips cut from the fat quarters that will eventually be his big boy bed quilt!

The only problem...he wants to play with them instead of look at them {he already broke the frame stand off the fire truck!}.

But, it really makes his room look a little more put together. And he's sleeping in the twin bed now {as evidenced by the rail}, there was a little too much bouncing on the crib mattress going on, I was afraid he might hurt himself! And even though this picture is a bit blurry, it was the best I could do indoors with a busy little boy.

So, at the rate I'm moving, it looks like their room should be completely together about the time we pack up and move next summer!  Oh well, at lest everything will be ready for the next house!

Linking up with:


  1. They look great.

    Saw some quilted wall art this weekend. They had mounted quilted blocks on canvas frames. Very cool looking. Although I have no idea how the cost of frames compairs to the cost of stretched cancases.

    1. The canvas sounds really neat! These were $3 frames from Target, so they were super cheap, I'm not really sure what canvases run...but now I'm itching to try it out!

  2. I love it..I'm in the process of making a baby boy quilt right now! I love the wall art...I must try that!

  3. Love. Love. Love. Too late to do this for my son (he's an adult now!) but I just love the idea! Nice job!

  4. Very cute! I also love Silas with his two friends!

  5. Jennie, you did such an awesome job! This turned out great and I'm so happy that you and Silas love your alphabet animals poster!

  6. What a cute room! "Peak Hour" is such a great fabric line!

  7. That is very clever. It is so a boy room.

  8. Such clever quilty artwork ideas..... looks great...

  9. Just beautiful--both the new artwork and the little man!

  10. What a cute idea! I love the way it ties everything together. I'm going to have to try a grown up version for myself. Thanks for the idea!

  11. What a great room Lucky Silas. Maybe you could cut out 3 more trucks, and backing and sew them together with a little stuffing-Then Silas would be able to play with them and just admire the ones on the wall.

  12. This is so adorable! I love everything about this room of Silas's ...I sooooo love his name as well. He is adorable.

  13. Those frames are so darling! And I love those whole peak hour cars. What a fun idea :-)
