Friendship Kit Quilt from Moda
You need to be shopping for Turkey red reproductions right now.
Buy them when you see them because they are hard to find.
You can see several in Moda's Collection for A Cause: Friendship.http://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_collections_friendship.pdf
I see by the comments the precuts are available but the yardage hasn't been shipped.
There are many prints in the line but I'm crazy about the Turkey reds. The kit quilt above is a copy of a Philadelphia Friendship quilt from about 1850. They were wild about Turkey red prints in the 1850s.
Turkey red was especially popular for folded applique patterns like this fleur-de-lis dated 1849 and the quilt for the Friendship line at the top of the page.

What makes an authentic Turkey red reproduction? A red background (in true 19th century Turkey reds the fabric was dyed red first and then colors were added by various printing methods).
ReproductionThe figures were limited in color due to the complexity of the printing processes. The most common figures are a dark blackish-brown and a yellow.
Antique with two colors for figures
The printers also added a green.
Antique with yellow, brown and green figures
In the most complex of the Turkey red prints they printed five colors for the figures
These multicolor Turkey red prints were popular with quilters from about 1840 to 1870--- a necessity for the reproduction stash.
The pattern for the applique quilt at the top of the page is online at Moda's free pattern source. See it here:
