Quilt With Us

I am trying to figure out how to do the back for a quilt for my parents Christmas. The 'green' top is the front of the quilt. I want to use the striped fabric for the back of the quilt but have one row of the green fabric with the 'ovals' going across the quilt about 20 inches from the top. The only way I could think of doing this was to piece the back of the quilt in rows of blocks (brick pattern), Using 8.5" x 6.5" blocks for a finished block of 8" x 6". There must be an easier way? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully, this all makes sense.

If the striped fabric is wide enough and long enough to cover the back of your quilt, but you want the oval fabric on the back in squares to match the placement on the front, I'd leave the stiped solid and applique the oval fabric squares where you want them.

This is what I'd do, put the ovals in the center and have the striped at each of the ends.

I guess I am not following your backing idea. I often piece backs and they can be very fun and interesting. I have used varied strips etc. Less is often better in less seams.
