Will it quilt?

How can I tell if vintage fabric (some lovely old printed tablecloths with no labels) is 100% cotton?

I'm hoping to use some old printed tablecloths to make a play mat/baby quilt. I know it's important to use 100% cotton (or other natural fiber) fabric when quilting—how can I make sure that these fabrics are? They feel and look like cotton to me, but I don't know how to determine so definitively.
