Q: "Bedquilt" is very confusing. What's up with that?

There is a degree of randomness in this area. You might try very persistently going one direction or another. Most of the time you'll wind up in Bedquilt again, but from time to time you'll get a surprise and wind up someplace else. And once you find yourself in a room adjacent to Bedquilt, using the name of that room can be helpful in being able to navigate more reliably. For example, slab will usually get you from Bedquilt to the Slab Room.
