    it's a heavy-weight cloth that's used in outdoor furniture, bbq aprons, etc.

    if they're not to fussy. since it's thick, it would be hard to cross multiple seams. otherwise it would be a good choice. you'd need to finish the edges, because they fray.

    I do the out of the ordinary recycling. I wanted to make my two grandchildren a throw using some of their dad's Army BDU (uniforms no longer in use). I used the quilt as you go method and it worked ok.
