Oli has a pretty bedroom. Oli has a very, pretty bed.
Oli, who is a pretty girl,
wondered if Grandma would make a quilt for her bed.
“Why, yes,” said Grandma.
Grandma had never made a quilt big enough to cover a whole bed.
She had always made little snuggle quilts.
She wondered if she could do it.
“I wonder if I can make such a big quilt ?”
Grandma wondered to herself.
She did a lot of wondering.
More wondering than she used to do.
It might just be that she was getting a little older.
She wondered about that.
Well . . . she did make Oli’s bed quilt
and she is glad she did.
It is made of lots of big triangles.
The yellow and blue triangle-squares
are hand-stitched around each square.
The whole quilt is tied to the backing
at the center of each square
with Perle Cotton thread.
She made a couple of pillowcases. The kind that are just for show.
The yellow and blue border on the pillowcases
is the same as the backing of the bed quilt.
I love you, pretty Oli.
