The Useful Seamripper

My commission for the A Good Man Remembered was so successful, that the client returned for another quilt and a pillow. In addition, she had misjudged this wallhanging. It looked too small on the wall above her bed. Was there any possibility of enlarging it?

Small Memory Quilt #5- Wall Hanging

Patchwork Detail

The challenge: to remove the sleeve and then the backing and border on two edges; add pieces of similar suit material to the backing; make 19 additional blocks (one row longer and two rows wider) that incorporated some of the already used materials with others; and re-assemble the piece to look identical to the original hanging except for its bigger size:
