stitch sampler patchwork baby blanket

I'm knitting a baby blanket for a friend's baby that has recently arrived. I'm doing squares of different knitting stitches (i.e. moss stitch, checks, garter stitch, seed stitch, etc.). However, I'm finding that my gauge changes from square to square. I basically have been casting on 24 stitches for each square, but the length of the squares changes (one garter stitch square with the same amount of stitches lengthwise as a checked square ended up being a quarter longer).

Does anyone have ideas on whether it will be all right when I sew them together, or should I just eyeball it and make each square roughly the same size and just stitch them together with mattress stitch?
