These plates look to be on the large side to me. You want to make sure that they're not hanging off of your sides or wrapping around too much!

just trim 1/4-1/2 inch off the edges, no need to start again.
If you look at the do's and don't you'll see your not far off

Are you sure this is the right picture?
I ask as it doesn't seem you've trimmed them only shaped them a bit?
