Although I am still not up to par, I did want to get at least one of the Beginner's Quilt Along blocks made. I managed to finish this one.
Another thing I learned to do is swirl the seams to make the block lay flatter.
Uh...ignore those loose threads I haven't picked off yet... But when you swirl the seams on a four patch. you get a mini-four patch on the back. Notice that all the seams are pressed counter-clockwise. Then you just finesse that center a bit to get the mini-four patch and press.
