    I've been inspired by the bargellos posted recently on here (barnbum's gave me the final push! ;) ) to get this out of a drawer. It's a Lockwood Designs pattern called 'Disco'. I love it, I love the fabrics I chose, I love the pattern, I'm just HATING piecing it! Aaaargh! All those itty bitty pieces and all the unsewing - bo-oring! BUT I really want it done so can you all please nag me until I have? Thanks! :mrgreen: :lol:

    The picture of how it will look! 59" x 63"

    Just keep plugging away at it. It is going to be gorgoeus when it is done. Bargellos do seem to take more time but they are so worth the extra trouble in the end. Just relax and don't stress.

    That's going to be beautiful! I don't think nagging will be required. Sleeping might be the issue...all you'll want to do is sew until it is done! (O:

    You go, girl. I would have stopped before I even started! It will be worth every unsewed seam - think of the 'bragging rights' you'll score when complete. Keep us posted & we'll keep you going.

    Well I've done 4 whole rows! Which moved me along a whole 2"! :shock: :lol: In three more rows, I'll be at the centre then it's downhill all the way to the finish, right?! :D :D

    Thanks so much for the encouragement. ;-)

    Are you seeking polite nagging or something more like: "GET BUSY, WOMAN!"?? Although wavy bargello makes me queasy when I look at it, I much admire the talent and labor that goes into both fabric selection and quilt top construction.
