Cool Collections – Sherbet Pips and Little Apples

I’ve become totally enamored with Sherbet Pips and Little Apples, two recent fabric collections from Moda. Both lines by designer Aneela Hoey feature charming and whimsical little motifs that I find irresistible. She masterfully combines fresh, contemporary color palettes with playful little characters that are just a wee bit nostalgic. I can see using these fabrics for a variety of projects – quilts, pillow cases, children’s clothes. I’m currently working on two new quilt patterns, armed with jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs from both collections. Take a look at a sampling of Little Apples:

And here are a few of my favorite images from Sherbet Pips:

Designer Aneela Hoey is a graduate of the Winchester School of Art in the UK with a degree in printed textile design. She has worked in studios in London and New York, designing both fabrics and embroidery patterns. To see more of her work, check out Aneela’s blog.

Until next time, back to designing with pips and apples!

  1. I love them! They just might satisfy my craving for Heather Ross – that I can afford. I have a collection of her early ones and have been looking for a similar designer ever since.


  2. Love the new fabrics! I think little ones would just love to snuggle up to a quilt made with those fabrics. I will be anxious to see what you do with them.
