I'm currently trying to see together the Fishnet Quilt by Aardvark and I'm having some problems. When I try to see the diagonal pieces together, they look like they should match up, but when I go to pin them, they don't. If any one has some advice I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks

Hmm well that's not a straight seam so not sure how that's going to work.  The pattern doesn't give any instructions for paper piecing or partial seams or something? I'm not familiar with this pattern, do you have a link?

You probably have to stop 1/4 inch from each of the sides...then sew, pivot, sew, pivot...I have seen a few quilts with angled seams like that...

Is that considered a partial seam? Or is that different? I get Y Seams and Partial Seams confused. I found the pattern and it's a paid pattern so we can't look at the directions. It looks like a cool pattern though! I've seen kind of similar things done with foundation paper piecing only, now I've very curious how this is constructed!
