  2. Seeing her Mom’s happiness as she hugged the Corn and Beans Scrap quilt that Marianne gave her for Christmas was her own favorite gift the year her Mother was in her late eighties.

  3. Her best Christmas gift was seeing the look on her Mom’s face when she opened her gift of a quilt : Corn & Beans scrap quilt that Marianne gave her mother.

  4. seeing her mom’s happiness as she hugged the scrap quilt “Corn and Beans” that Marianne had made. I wish my mother had saw that I have started to learn to quilt before she passed away. I think she would have been happy too. What a wonderful gift to see the happiness of others.

  5. The look on her mothers face when she opened her Christmas gift, a quilt of corn and beans.I wish I could have made my mother a quilt but she has been gone home 46 yrs ago.

  6. The pleasure of seeing her mom’s happiness as she hugged the “Corn and Beans” scrap quilt Marianne made for her. My grandmother, who quilted out of necessity more than anything else, made beautiful Crazy quilts. Her fabrics all came from her scraps and mending baskets so her quilts were so unique. I wish she were still alive so I could make her a “fancy quilt”. I love to share my quilting passion with others.

  7. Seeing the happiness on her mother’s face when she gave her a Corn and Beans quilt that she had made for her. Any gift that you have mad3e and given to someone who appreciates it and shows it, make it a memorable Christmas.

  8. Seeing her mother’s joy upon opening a quilt Marianne made for her, a Corn and Beans scrap quilt.

    I completely relate to that–I often look back at a picture of my two year old nephew hugging his new quilt with delight. (His dad is the son of a quilter and knew to take a photo of the precious moment.)

  9. The happiness on her Mom’s face when she opened the corn and beans quilt she nad made for Christmas.
    I wish my Mom would have lived long enough for her to see the quilt I made for her. She did get to see the top, but I did not get the hand quilting done before she passed away.

  10. It was a reflection of the true meaning of Christmas……..giving to others. In this case, watching her mother’s joy at seeing something that her daughter made for her. It could have been a simple drawing made by a 2 year old and any mother would give the same reaction.

  11. I remember that article, it was when she gave her mom one of her own quilts. Thought it was odd though that she went into her quilt stash and found one to give to her.

  12. A favorite gift was the happiness her mother showed when looking at her new quilt.

    It worked a similar way for me-I get teary eyed with good memories when I wrap up in the quilt with the flowers of all 50 states that my sister was working on. I finished it with her input for the 6 weeks she was in hospice. She was totally paralyzed, but I planned the embroidery with her and finished quilting it about 2months after she died. It is my family’s favorite quilt. I feel wrapped in her love whenever I use it. 🙂

  13. She gave her mother a nap-size “Corn and Beans” scrap quilt in blues, red, browns and greens. Quoting Marianne: “Seeing my mom’s happiness as she hugged her quilt was my own favorite gift that year” I know exactly what she means. That is one of the joys of quilting.

  14. “Seeing my mom’s happiness as she hugged her quilt was my own favorite gift that year.”

  15. Her best Christmas gift was seeing the look on her Mom’s face when she opened her gift of a quilt : Corn & Beans scrap quilt that Marianne gave her mother.

  16. Marianne said her favorite gift was her Mom’s happiness when she opened her gift of a Corn & Beans quilt. Those of us who read your magazine cover-to-cover knew just where to verify this fact.

  17. She remembered the joy of seeing her mom’s face when she open her corn and beans quilt. Giving a quilt to someone you love is like putting your arms around them each time the wrap up in the quilt! What a sneaky way to hug your teenagers! LOL

  25. Marianne’s best Christmas gift was seeing the look on her Mother’s face when her Mother opened the Corn and Beans scrap quilt that Marianne made and gave her Mother. Priceless — there is no better present than a homemade quilt!

  26. Hi, the article stated it was an already made from her shelf nap size corn and bean scrap quilt for her mother , Dorothy Graham. It was made from Blues, greens, reds and browns. It was opened with her and her daughters watching and her mother laughed joyfully and pressed the mass of triangles against her heart when she saw what it was . Seeing her mothers happiness was the best gift she had.

  27. Seeing the joy on her Mother’s face as she opened and hug the Corn and Beans quilt Marianne made for her as a gift. Seeing the pleasure someone has when you give them a special gift is the best gift in the world.

  28. When Marianne saw the look of sheer joy on her Mom’s face after her Mom held that wonderful Corn and Beans scrap quilt, words can never express the joy and love.

  29. The best Christmas gift was seeing the look on her Mom’s face when she opened her gift of a quilt of the Corn & Beans scrap quilt that Marianne gave her mother. :~)

    1. “Seeing my mom’s happiness as she hugged her quilt was my own favorite gift that year.”

      I just wish my folks were still around so I could make them a quilt! Their joy at everything we received for Christmas was almost as good as the joy on their faces for the gifts they received from us.

  30. Seeing her mothers happiness as she hugged her scrappy corn and beans quilt that Marianne had just given to her as a Christmas gift. I am hopeing some day I can find the time to make one.

  31. The happiness she brought to her Mom when her Mom opened the gift of the quilt that she had made especially for her Mom. Homemade gifts are gifts from the heart! <3

  32. A TRUE gift is seen in our mother’s eyes, the joy of receiving something made with our own hands, stitched in love, making memories . . . and an heirloom for future generations. The Corn & Bean Quilt.

  33. There is no greater gift for a mother than something handmade from her child! I still put ornaments on my tree from when the children made them in kindergarden. They are now in their 40’s! The gift of a quilt not only warms the body it warms the soul.

  34. Seeing the look of pure joy on her mother’s face when she opened her Christmas gift of the quilt! I love to make quilted items for my family for Christmas and 2 years ago I made a wall quilt for both my mom and dad and my inlaws. Each quilt had a square for each family member (on that side of the family) and each family member had personalized their own square, and then I put them all together and finished them up. The look of joy on both my mom and my mom in laws faces was priceless! My mom cherishes her own quilt even more now since my stepdad passed away last September. I love making my family happy with my handmade gifts.

  35. Seeing her mom’s happiness as she hugged her quilt was the best gift.
    I wish my mom was still around, she taught me all I know about sewing, but I didnt learn to quilt till after she died. I believe she watches me while I work in my sewing room.
