    I had the same thoughts when I saw the fabric.
    I did to. I have a very similar fabric that I bought at joann's awhile back. It can be repaired. I love saving old quilts from being turned into bears and hearts being sold on eBay.
    I will look this weekend and if I can find it in all my packing (just moved) you are welcome to it. Send me a PM if interested.

    You might consider taking out each block that is damaged, then you won't have to match any of the fabrics. I have one my daughter took to the beach that I found years later and that's how I'm repairing it. It's very time consuming. Take the quilting stitches out, leaving the thread long enough that you can do a couple of stitches and tie it off. Then you can start your machine quilting from those places once you have replaced the blocks, batting and backing. Just take your time. it will be well worth it. Looks like a lovely quilt.
