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:
