I'm concerned that this is going to necessitate an estimated tax payment I had not anticipated last April. Is there any special procedure to accomplish this now and avoid some (or all) of the penalty?

I agree with the solutions that have already been given to you. That said, I would point out that if you would otherwise meet a safe harbor, like paying 100% of 2018's tax liability (110% for income > $150k) in withholding and/or estimated tax payments for 2019, there won't be a penalty, even if you don't make an estimated tax payment.
