    Maybe a close up photo of the tears would help someone with a better idea of how to repair it. I would be interested in hearing the suggestions too. It's good information to have for some of our "very loved" quilts!!

    applique some flowers in different places. put some over the torn parts. spread them around so it looks like it was designed that way. :-)

    It is hard to see the torn parts. I would stick a piece of fabric underneath the tear and sew it down with tiny stitches. Another way would be to put some wonder under with the piece of fabric and iron it down. This way it will glue the tear together and make it stronger.

    I assumed to sew accurately manually new details. Though the decision with flowers more interesting.

    If you have any of the fabric left, you could replace the torn sections.

    I also like the idea of the applique - but for me, the blue colored fabric suggests fish and boats.
