Oh you need to finish it it will look wonderful...can you trim to make the same size? If yes I would do that...if you cannot and still have enough on outer "ring" can you add a new wider out ring and then trim it?

just trim them, even it they're a little wonky it will be fine. More character. The colors are lovely, and it will look amazing finished.

Mouseinmypocket has summed it up perfectly- embrace the wonkyness :)

Could you add another round of strips to even them out?

Readerowl

Thanks for the encouragement everyone! I have enough fabric - some cut in 2" strips and some uncut - to add another ring and/or finish the dozen or so smaller started blocks. I thought I only had 3 finished blocks but found the rest when packing and unpacking my sewing stuff.

I like Mouseinmypocket 's suggestion - I'd trim 'em up and not worry about it...it will look wonderful and no one will be the wiser :)

Depending on how much they are off, you could probably "fudge" it together. Take a smaller seam allowance on the smaller blocks. Or just make them fit and make it more of a wonky quilt. Either way it will be wonderful!

I love the colors in this quilt. Finish the blocks! I would trim...easiest and will get you sewing them together in o time.

I will go with the rest just trim and sew - and I like the colours ... well I like msot colours as long as the have some colour in them

I would trim and sew, 22 years later after the start date you can have it finished, and use it as a graduation gift for a grand kid if you have any.

You could add a solid color stashing and cut it down so they are all the "same size"... you could even wonky it if you want and kind of give it a modern twist.
