Wedding Party!

My nephew got married in a destination wedding last Dec.  You may recall the tumbler quilt I made for their wedding gift.  I blogged about it here.  The reception/party to celebrate the wedding was on Saturday.  It was held at my SIL house in their back yard.  They had a tent, good food, an open bar and a DJ.  It was a lot of fun.  Here is my nephew and his wife with my MIL and FIL
Chris and Carla

We got to meet our other nephew's new girlfriend too and she was a real sweetie.
Elizabeth and James

My SIL and BIL brought their 4 kids, who we hardly get to see. You may remember Jessie, I made her a graduation quilt from the LCQAL. This is the 4 cousins with my DD2 in the middle of all of them. They were making somores.
My DD1 brought her BF and I managed to actually get a nice shot of them together.

And just because he might feel left out, this is my son (in the white) with his cousin. The two of them are always together at family functions!
James and Thadd


I thought you might like to see what I did for the label on the tumbler quilt too. I had made a two row strip across the back and there happened to be one white tumbler. I used that for the label!

Quilt label
I put a Gaelic saying on it too:

Beannachd Dia dhuit! 

OR

Blessings of God be with you!

I'm told the bride cried when she read the label. My favorite response to gifting a quilt! How about you? What kind of reaction do you like to see? ~XOP~

Beautiful label -always good to spend time with family, especially on a happy occasion! Tears of joy are the best response to a quilted gift!

i can tell you my LEAST favorite reaction - but that's not what you asked, is it?

i loved it when LuLu took her mother's quilt from her and said, "i NEED it ... i NEED it" and wouldn't give it back - ha ha ha!!!

I like to see ANY kind of reaction. There are still so many people that think a quilt is a "none" gift. So I don't give many to friends or relatives. Mostly give them to charity.

What type of pen/marker do you use for your labels? I haven't had a chance to get a quilt reaction yet. :)
