The Counterpane Fairy is a children's story written and illustrated by Katherine Pyle.
A little boy named Teddy, bedridden by a long illness, lies in his bed recuperating, when he is visited by the Counterpane[1] Fairy. She entertains him during her frequent visits with stories, each associated with quilted squares in the counterpane. During each visit she has him concentrate intently on a square until it turns into something and becomes a doorway into the story. Once inside the story, he becomes the lead character until the end when it fades away and he awakens.
[1} a Counterpane is known variously as a quilt, eiderdown or throw.
