WIP Wednesday

Do you like thrift shopping? Every once in awhile, Gary and I will stop by the Salvation Army store or Goodwill to see if we can find any good bargains. One of my favorite things about the thrift store is how the clothing racks are organized by color. Those colorful rows  just draw me in for a closer look! 

Anyway! A couple weekends ago, I picked up these old sheets thinking I could make them into quilts. I'm still inspired by Luke Haynes' quilts and I thought maybe I would give the repurposing idea a try!

Here's what I've sewn so far. Kinda weird, huh? Did you ever have those striped sheets? We had them when I was a kid, so I felt all nostalgic for them which made me buy the sheet even though the middle is pretty worn out. The edges were still good so I got a decent amount of strips out of it.

Now I'm trying to decide if I should add a purple border on the right side and bottom or if I should just leave it as is. Any thoughts? 

I still have lots of fabric left, so I may add a yellow border and I will definitely use one of the sheets for the back. 
I'm enjoying making this just for fun! I was thinking I should have done quilt as you go though, because now I have to figure out how to quilt it!
