Crochet Squared

I'm really digging the colors Matt helped me pick out for the mitered crochet throw. I've got the pattern down, but I am having some gauge issues:

My gauge relaxes as I go, so my squares aren't very square.

It has gotten better (my first two squares are unusable), but I have to really watch how loose I get, especially on the last two colors. I'm hoping that sewing the blocks together will help them square up. However, I'm avoiding weaving in ends, just in case I need to go back and rework these blocks (ya, has NOTHING to do with me procrastinating on the weaving in ends thing).

I'm actually debating if I should do the last color in a smaller hook just to help tighten up the last two rows?
