I tried blowing the picture up, but I can’t make out whether this is cross-stitch or needlepoint. In either case, what kind of fabric are you working on? I’m amazed that the the stitches didn’t...

I like GingerK’s suggestion. Once the blocks are all the same size, your only modification will be the location of the new blocks. If they are scattered over the whole quilt, no one will notice. If...
