    I have used the "Sam's Club" bags... They fold up nicely when not in use, and I can put small quilt/wall hangings in it easily to take to guild meetings.

    Sam's sells the bags in sets of two.

    They are really strong, to hold canned goods, so know they will hold precious fabric items!! :lol:

    Here you go........ I had to hunt, too, but it's under "log carrier" and I was searching for "quilt carrier" http://www.joann.com/static/project/0612/P407250C.pdf (edited to add: Aurora said it is under "log carrier", but I wasn't thinking when I used the search function there)
    I can't find anything under the Bernina site for this. Anybody have a link? TIA

    I don't have a pattern or picture. But here is a rough sketch how the carrier I use is made. You pile quilts in the center and carry by the dowel handles. you can use any size big square. Hem it all around. Cut out the rectangle from the folded over opposite corners. Insert dowel rod usually about 3/4" x 12". Upholstery fabric is good for these. Name:  tote with dowels.JPG

    Oh, I forgot. I put velco on the corners that aren't cut. Fold over the contents and secure to each other.

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!!
