Oh, and about repairs? I can tell you what my mom did. She evaluated the damaged piece(s) and checked to see if they were frayed, split, or otherwise damaged in a way that made them difficult to sew. If not, she stitched them back together, or back down to the batting and back of the quilt, with fine thread (or a single strand of regular thread)and very small stitches to prevent undue strain on the fabric. If they were frayed or too damaged to stitch, she cut a piece of new scrap cloth to fit and hand-stitched it on over the damage, making a patch that gently united the pieces again. A big section of damage along one edge, she repaired with wide seam binding in a color that looked good with the other colors.

Don't know if any of these will work for you, but thought it was worth mentioning them in case they give you ideas.
