When I did this block I shifted the beginning of the rounds. Most of the rounds start in the corner with a triple crochet and 2 double crochets, and end with the other two double crochets of the corner motif, but I felt that this made for an awkward join on the first block so I did the entire corner motif at the start of the round. This meant that I had to slip stitch to the triple crochet on several rows, but I think the joins come out cleaner.
