When Grandma disappears without a trace, Mally Spencer doesn't know what to think and certainly didn't expect to find her within a magical quilt.
A chance discovery in Grandma's sewing room catapults Mally into the world of Quilst, where everything is made of fabric and stuffed animals can come to life. Is this where Grandma has been the whole time?
Mally sets off to search, but is quickly caught by the powerful Queen of Quilst. In order to free herself, Mally must overcome her worst fears and learn how to stitch herself free. She’ll have to become more than just a kid playing make-believe.
She’ll have to become a Maker.
