    I have noticed some quilters have made really cute bags to put their quilt in. Can anyone tell me how to make these or where to go for a pattern. I am very new to quilting so not familar with all the go to places yet but this board is awesome.

    I often just make a pillowcase type bag. You can add a drawstring at the top to hold it in if you want to, also.

    If you are wanting a tote to carry your WIP around in, you can easily make one. I use upholstry or drapery fabric for the outside and the handles, then line it with regular fabric.

    The kind of bag I'm referring to is one where after you have made a quilt you make a matching tote bag to put the quilt in as gift bag and it stores the quilt. I seen this at a wedding shower and thought it was a wonderful Idea but don't know who had made it. Any suggestions.
