I looked back and the last time I had a quilt reveal that was not a rescue was January. It was this one. I guess I’ve been busy with other things. No matter! There’s a reveal today of my fourth Trippy quilt. I’m not going to say that I could make one that I prefer better than that gold version, but I really LOVE this one.
Let’s get all the questions I normally get asked out of the way first! Trippy pattern is here, it’s part of the Scrappy Pattern Pack.
My other versions of Trippy:
- The first one – Purple and Yellow – Gifted to my sister
- That colorful one – HUGE – Commission quilt
- Then the gold one – The one I’d grab if the house was coming down around me and that everyone said looked like 70s shag carpet
- Skill Level: Beginner friendly
- Available in PDF and Paper booklet
- Video tutorials
- Pattern is clickable with lots of helpful links included (including methods for basting, quilting and binding)
- 3 scrappy quilt patterns included.
I used scraps for this quilt in shades of orange, shades of green, a tiny smidgen of silver, and loads of low volume. I also threw in just a bit of teal that was on the green side of the color wheel. I don’t have the exact fabrics in a bundle for you, but here’s something I put together and meant to be very similar to this version of the quilt.
I used this pic to choose my fabrics. It was sent to me by the lady who commissioned the quilt.
I quilted this one with an all over design, the scallop bubbles. Here’s a tutorial for those. Having the whole quilt done with these made for some yummy texture. It took quite a while to quilt this one up, but worth it, I think.
Someone asked me recently how to choose what quilting design, and I don’t think there are any rules. For Trippy though, since it is a very busy quilt and there is no place for the eye to rest, I think it’s best with an all over design. Why make it overly difficult if you can’t really see it? I hadn’t done this design on a quilt yet and wanted to, so here we are.

This one is a feel good finish. Tedious, but fun watching come together. I’m really wanting to make another gold version for my own bed, but KNOW that it would be such a big task to take on. Soon though. My heart is set on.
