Cool blues are coming together

Mmm, I love when a project starts to come together - I cut all my fabric in August, I made 96 hourglass blocks and 192 flying geese blocks the first two weeks of September and now that I'm ready to put it all together, some of my blocks are up to 1/8th of an inch smaller than they should be. Oohh the horror (I watched Glee last night, so you have to imagine Sue Sylvester saying that last sentence - LOL). So the question is, do I make all the blocks 1/8th of an inch smaller or do I just keep all the smaller blocks together and make a complete unit with them?

Here's a shot of all the blocks, ready to be put together.

Here's what the final block looks like, I will have twelve of them once I'm finished putting them together. The pattern is from the February 2010 issue of BH & G's American Patchwork Quilting Magazine. It's on the cover, but they did theirs in red and white. I had planned on switching up how the quilt blocks go together anyway, so the different sized blocks might not be too big a deal. This is just another opportunity to play and see what I can come up with as far as design goes. Maybe this is why I'm drawn to liberated quilting...there are no mistakes, only opportunities. :)
Happy Wednesday everyone
