I purchased two quilted pads in 1991 while moving.They were so sturdy that I raised two kids with these quilted pads as bed covers. They finally wore out a few years ago. When I received the quilted pads recently there was a marked difference in the quality of the product. However, if used for just covering furniture I guess they will work. i would recommend them for padding furniture. I guess I got more applications from them in the past.
