Quilt
Quilts have always been very close to my heart. My mother Dee specialised in Islamic textiles and her love of fabric knew no bounds. She made countless quilts with the help of her close group of friends. The beautiful pieces were gifted to friends and family. Not only were they wonderful to look at, but I love the fact that they would keep you warm. A piece made with love that also had a kind of protective purpose says so much about the quilt itself and the maker. My bed at home is layered with all sorts of quilts and blankets. A splash of colour here and a new texture there. I love to find different pieces that keep me cosy, and the Moroccan blankets (pictured) are just gorgeous. They're hand-woven by the Berber women and to me they evoke the spice-rich memories of walking through the old souk. The generous pom-poms are the final touch that adds a playful quality, too. Chilly days make me want to curl up in one with a good book.
