What happens when there is just just enought fabric for the backing???

I have been working on this little quilt, as I was getting down to the last border, guess what?????
Not enough fabric for the backing. 
Here is what I did to solve the problem, but ..................
Here I am as far up as possible!!

THE BOTTOM OF THE QUILT

THE RED SNAPPERS AND THE QUILT TOP GOING OVER THEM!!!!


Pulled out the red snappers on the bottom and lucky, there was just enough fabric so not to take it off the frame and sew a strip on.
I pinned the backing fabric to the leaders praying that there was enough to be able to sew, and wow!!!there was, but I kept my fingers crossed all the time so not to hit the pins as I did the final quilting!!!


Here she is, all done!!!

A little close up, and my prayers were answered!!!
This little patch was featured in  BURDA a few months ago with the pattern and was designed in Belgium
