Can I transplant my fescue?

My front yard looks absolutely awesome with some very rich deep green fescue. I had the sod laid a year and a half ago. Got it through the amazingly hot summer and now it thrives. Can I take a few 6" squares and put it in my back yard and repeat as the front yard fills back in? Or am I just dreaming about a cheaper way to get this growing in my back yard without buying the sod? If this will work, any pointers on what I should do to help ensure success?
Thanks

Fescue is a clump type grass and will not spread like bluegrass or zoysia will. The bare spots you'd make in the front will tend to fill in over time from the remaining clumps around them growing bigger. And the areas you transplant to the back would also grow sligthly larger over time.
But no one in their right mind would do this to establish a lawn because the method is not only faulty, but a huge amount of work. You don't say where you are located, but at the appropriate time, rent a slice seeder, buy an appropriate grass seed blend and seed it, which is a lot lower cost than sod and can be done in a 1/2 day for a typical lawn.
