Liz Porter loves antique quilts and enjoys making quilts that capture the spirit of quilts from historic periods. Liz pieced Root Beer and Bubblegum as a tribute to the double pink and madder brown quilts that were so popular from about 1860-1880, the so-called “brown years.” This quilt is fat-quarter friendly.
