Sure post a pic!

If the squares are all the same size you could crochet or sew them together. If they are different you could crochet or knit a border on the smaller ones to make them the same size.

Wow, you got a lot of stuff! The squares might be close to the same size if you block them then they'll be easier to sew together.

That's a lot of yarn and squares. Cool! You could also do them kinda like a crazy quilt (all different sizes and shapes of fabric sewn together: http://pinterest.com/pin/117586240242117559/).

Do you have a place you can lay out your squares and see what they look like "fitted" together? That might give you an idea of what sizes and shapes you still need (to fill gaps), and it will also tell you what the final size of your creation will be--and what "shape" you can make, too (rectangle? square?).
