it looks like 2 of your half squares don't meet on the corners

yes, the half squares should come out with the two fabrics meeting exactly in the middle.  Make sure you are sewing a scant quarter inch consistently.   Half squares are still tricky.  Some folks make them a little bigger, then cut down to the exact size they want, with the diagonal seam exactly lined up with the point.

Yeah, tutorials are great!  Elizabeth, one of the best ways to get lots of guidance and a gazillion answers to questions is to post on the message board.  Go to message boards, scroll down and pick a category like 'quilt making' and click on that, then click on the blue words, write a new post (or something like that.)  Posting picks is a little different there, click on film strip, after selecting the photo click insert.  Wait, wait, wait, then when it shows up, click post.   with your enthusiasm, you wont be a beginner for long!
