Thanks for your great suggestion. No extra blocks though this time. Too bad.

Could you cut the backing material diagonally and insert a strip of material there to extend the quilt backing both horizontally and vertically by 4" on all sides? If so, would that strip need to be 9" wide...but how long?

Thank you. This is what I ended up doing. I tried to add a photo but I got an error message.
