‘Quilting Perfect’ is a comprehensive quilting tutorial for bag makers. If you love the examples at the very top of this article that have the amazing quilting on the flap, then you’ll want to grab this quilting tutorial so you can sew your own just like it.

The tutorial contains full instructions and templates to create three stunning quilt designs on either faux leather or cork leather. A full video tutorial is included within the pattern download.

The techniques used are specifically for these materials but could be adapted to use on other materials.

We all love to quilt on our bags but this tutorial will help you raise your game and create complex quilting designs that will make your bags the envy of all of your friends.

These designs can be used on any bag made from the appropriate materials. Use on the whole bag or perhaps just as an accent.
This listing does not contain the Ricochet bag pattern, just the quilting tutorial.

What will you need to be able to create them? A Teflon foot is ideal for sewing these sorts of fabrics. Silver pens (removable leather marking pens). Patience and accurate sewing skills.
