Aurgh! Two blocks are too small

Oh my - I've procrastinated so long on making this chemo quilt for a friend, and now that I've started sewing the top together, two of the ladies removed a 1/4" (and sometimes more) all around the block! I had drawn it in so they could see how far they could go, but for some unknown reason, they decided to trim it off.

What now? I have 3/4 of the top put together. It's not possible to have them redo the blocks. I thought of basting them to a proper sized square, but even with that, you can still see where the short block is because it's not all getting caught in the seam allowance.

Oh, the humanity!! Thanks for whatever tips you might have.

if you have some more of the background, just add a strip to make the block the right size - it will show, but it is the love that the block was made with that counts the most!

Other than that I am stuck for ideas
