Ladies, I have the pattern now too, and now that I see it, it's just about like I've been doing for years with my scraps, to keep them organized and ready to use ~~just that  I never put out a pattern or book.   What I did was pick out some patterns I saw in magazines or on TV -- like Donna Poster's pattern called Block Party - it's a really great one for scraps and easy to piece - no seams to match.  Several others like Becky's Choice (Quiltmaker)and Cabin Trail uses smaller pieces and I piece them while I'm working on other blocks (as in leaders and enders).  It uses  2 1/2" squares, 2 1/2 X 4 1/2, and 2 1/2 X 6 1/2 pieces.  Here's a picture of 4 blocks set up on my board. Just like that, you have a stack of blocks ready to make a quick quilt when you need to, just as I do with the smaller scraps like I told you before with the Mile a Minute method.  I really like this Bonnie Hunter site, too - she must be my type of quilter!!  Kinda wanted to keep this thread alive, as it really is interesting to me!  Carol L

I have the Lumberyard (I want to call it a Lumberjack) Management System pattern and can't wait to start some blocks. In my cleaning attempt I found I had a bin of scraps already cut and now I'm cutting my leftovers when I finish a quilt into the lumberyard sizes. It's nice to see what you can do with them. So pretty and will make a nice quick quilt.

diane,  i think if your piles of fabric are tall enough, they will qualify as trees, then it could be a lumberjack management system      gini

Oh, I missed you, Gini! You have the funniest sense of humor or maybe it is twisted like mine. You make me laugh and that's always a good thing. My piles aren't as high as trees so does that make it lumber boys?

Bonnie is the designer of the Boxy Stars pattern that is being used in the group.  She has lots of really neat scrap patterns.

Marie:  I posted three phone numbers back on the second or third page of this thread.  If you don't have any luck with those, friend me, and I'll contact one of the authors to get you a pattern.  The Quilting Bee may still be having their 20% off sale.

It's a fun system.
