Default (Sweep + Inflation) Corner Mesh Quality

I am currently facing some difficulties in matching inflation layers. I can manage to create these layers but the elements that follows the region where these two meet have bad orthogonality quality. I think that forcing the layers to reach until the face will help forming better elements on the corners. Is there a way to force meshing into prolonging these layers? Please find some images attached.
I tried meshing inflation from edge sizing before but it can't be done for all edges. Building multiple solids and matching the mesh didn't work also, as meshing fails to work in some of the "blocks".

Thanks in advance
