I have always wanted to make Alex's puffy pyramid quilt in a Clockwork Orange. Here's a picture of it...


I've never quilted before but I'd love to make this, does anyone know how I could do this? How would I make each pyramid? What should I make it from?

Also, if anyone could find better images, that would be great!

Thanks in advance!

What an inspiring idea! I know what pattern I want to be working on!

I must scrounge my copy to watch any scenes with the blanket in it. I can imagine doing it in crochet or quilting. I hope there are some really good overhead shots of it.

For a quilt, to make the triangle poofy, you would need to stuff it with fiber fill. One way you could do it is to appliqu each triangle and fill them, or make it sort of like a biscuit quilt (also known as a puff quilt). I'd say make it from whatever you want, whatever you find! I'm very slowly making a quilt from long-pile minky, regular-pile minky, and corduroy. (One thing though, faux fur is the most annoying yet wonderful fabric I've found!) It would be hard for me not to want to use one of the lovely orange faux fur that http://www.distinctivefabric.com has available.

Has a nice photo of the poofy-ness.
The first how-to I came upon.

My night just got so much busier!

I'm guessing by the looks of it, that the quilt is crocheted. 

But yes, you would make a pyramid type thing.  Think of a Trivial Pursuit gamepiece but with the spaces having angles to make the pie pieces stand up.  does that even make sense?  lol

Thanks guys! I'm gonna make it out of polar fleece and I've figured out a way to make the pyramids (I think each section of the pyramid is stuffed) I'll do a test soon and then I'll try to put up the pictures!
