I made a rectangular shaped granny square afghan. I have noticed that when I do anything with a granny square pattern, the square always slants to the right. What in the world am I doing wrong?

I have the pattern for the july 4th afghan. The blue square has a white star crocheted in the square. I don't know how to enter the one stitch of white and then go on with the blue. Can you explain how it is done
