I would like to pass on some instructions to help get a better quilt block sewn for beginners and a refresher for others. It is important to measure & cut your fabric even, sew the right seam allowance, square up the units and press the seams to complete your block to the correct size. So I hope this is helpful.

Thanks for reminding us not to get sloppy. We all need a heads up every so often.
