Look at me, I have a WIP

I bought three 'sweat rags' when I was in Tokyo with Del two years ago.  I thought that I would cut them up and create something but hadn't until this weekend!  
"Sweat rag," I hear you ask?  The Japanese have all manner of cottons in varying sizes.  They are used to keep the sun off, as a kind of handkerchief, folded around goods or even folded up to create a bag.  I love them!
I decided to start and love the effect so far.  I cut each piece up into various sized strips.  These were randomly arranged and sewn together.  I am not sure what I am making but it is for me!  I guess it is a multi-purpose throw for my couch.  I am not sure what to do next.  Any hints?  How should I quilt it?  
So far, I have made up this design and followed no rules I know of.  What do you think?

Well done Ellen. Buy some batting; not less than the overall size of the quilt. Buy some fabric to back it with. "Sandwich" all three layers by applying a coat of quilt basting spray to the backing, put the batting on top and then another coating of spray before putting the top on. Tack by hand and then stitch in the ditch. LOve JEG
