    Hi. Welcome from Virginia!!
    When I first joined a quilt group in Las Vegas, they were making this quilt bag. I love it!! Carries an awful lot and has plenty of pocket space. Holds a 12x18 cutting board along with rulers, books, thread, pin cushion, a couple of quilts, etc. I used packaged binding for the pocket edges (instead of turning hems) and all around the bag. Less expensive to make your own. Also, I put velcro on one side of the dowel closure so that I could take them out to wash it. Also came in handy when my son's dog thought the handles were a chew toy!!! It is made with the prequilted fabric, but you could make your own fabric, then cut it out! Hope this helps!!

    ps. The 7" cut is the piece that goes all around the bag to make the bottom and sides. Of course, I got carried away and used what was left of the fabric, about 10", so it could even carry my machine!!

    I have found two patterns:

    They are called log carriers, but I have seen these in use for carrying multiple quilts.

    One is on the JoAnns website in their pattern section.

    The other is on the Bernina website.

    These are both free patterns. The JoAnns one is very simple, while the Bernina one is a little more involved.

    Also like to piece miniatures.

    BUT I need a quilt carrying bag for my big quilts so I can take them to show and tell at the guild. I have seen one with long wooden handles that looks perfect but I could use a pattern. Any suggestions??
    Go to Goodwill - find two quilted pillowshams. Sew them together on three sides and add a carrying strap. Makes a perfect quilt carrier.

    Hi! Welcome from Kansas. I'm making my DD a big tote that's about 21" by 18" tall. I got the pattern free from 3 creative studios.
