Calling All Fabric Hounds!

You're good at sniffing out fabric, I need your help with this one. The fabric pictured here is from the "Samsara" collection by Benartex (circa 2009); I need five yards for backing. Here's the dilemma: while documenting projects for my UFO notebook I came across everything I need for a Shop-Hop row quilt. I have all the kits (including fabric), for six rows. I have the border fabrics and the binding fabric and all the instructions for the 62.5" X 84.5" quilt top, everything is stored neatly together in a bin with a photo of what the completed project looks like. I attached a note that says : "5 yards for backing" to the photo. Now, this is the weird part, I thought for sure that I had purchased this already. I can't find it. It's not easy for five yards of fabric to go missing, it's not in any of the ususal storage places. Apparently, I meant to buy it, but never did. I'd love to stick to my original plan if at all possible. If I can't, it's no biggie; I can go with something else for backing.  If you've seen this fabric somewhere, lingering on a bolt in the "sale" section of your LQS or on your own shelf at home, and are willing to part with it, please let me know. I've exhausted all the online search sites; so, decided to call out the fabric hounds; one never knows.
Life is Good!

Update: Call off the hounds!  Fabric found, thanks to a friend; 
here (alternate colorway, but that's okay), at a GREAT price.
I'm blessed to know some of the best people, those who understand the value
 of fabric and love a hunt just as much as I do... but are better at it
Thanks, Jessica!

It is a pretty fabric, but it doesn't look familiar to me. Sorry. I hope someone can sniff it out!

Wish I could help but I don't have any. Will keep my eyes "peeled". It is beautiful and I can see why you want to find it. Linda

Oh, that's good you found a replacement! I was only able to locate a FQ of it in the black. I'm sure your project will look super! xx
