Great idea... we all need some quilts that we don't mind using for the tough jobs.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
That's what I like....repurpose, reuse, refresh. And look how much you saved!

How resourceful! And the best part is you had fun doing this! That is what matters the most!!
What a great idea! I'd never thought of using old sheets for beach quilts, but it totally works. That's also a good cheap way to practice FMQing.
Well now aren't you just the clever one! You have a perfect example of repurposing and now own two useful sheets. Congratulations on a job well done!

They are way to pretty to be for a picnic blanket. Great job.
Those make great utility quilts. My mom's cousin taught me to sew and she used sheets frequently for backings. Her other go to for backings was just plain old muslin. It was very economical for her. She always was on a very tight budget. Tell the quilt police to go fly a kite.
