    my problem seems to be with the diagonal seams linning up correctly..I made a practice wedge and the diagonal seams were just a thread or two off......any advise on matching diag. seams ..

    Is it where the points are to match on wedges? I've been doing tne Venice Rose, and when joining wedges, I first put a pin straight through to match points, then pin to keep in place, removing the first pin, then sew. Working great.
