The Counterpane Fairy by Katherine Pyle
By: (1863-1938)

A little boy, recuperating from a lengthy illness, is entertained by visits from the Counterpane Fairy, who treats him to stories associated with each of the squares in the counterpane (quilt) on his sickbed.

Once inside the story, he becomes its lead character until it fades out as if he’s awakening from a dream.
