    Input for quilt label please

    I've made a throw quilt for a young couple getting married in November. I haven't got a clue what sort of saying I should put on the label - any suggestions welcome!

    Sorry, probably no help.

    I don't put labels on all of my quilts but when I do, I usually say made especially for (blank) with love if it's family, by "my name" . Then the date and maybe location. For a wedding, I would add, especially for "couple's names" and date of wedding. I also put the name of the quilt on the first line, if it adds to the occasion. Just last week-end I stayed with my 9 year old GD. She proudly showed me her bed with the quilt I made for her 4 years ago. She then read me the label, so sweet. The name of the quilt pattern is "A Little Girl's Garden" and then the other info.

    I don't know how you are making your label... but the last wedding quilt that I made I put the chorus from the couple's first dance at their reception. I put their names and date and then the lines from the song. They really liked that
    I guess that only works if you know what their first dance will be

    I rarely put any messages on my labels - just their names, wedding date and down below, pieced and quilted by . . .
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I have started machine embroidering the label on the binding. I will put the bride's and groom's full names 'united in marriage on' the date and then made especially for you by and my name. One couple's had 'And so the adventure begins' on the invitation and I added that to the binding label. Another's also had a lovely saying which I added to the binding label but then went on to add two other sayings about love to each edge. The one I liked best was 'The greatest gift one person can give to another, costs nothing. It is Love.'
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Made me laugh out loud! And the young couple would see the humor in it as well, but my husband didn't!
    Guess I'll keep thinking/looking!
    Thanks for suggesting!

    Finally finished a batik wedding quilt/throw this past weekend. I put two labels on the back of a wedding quilt. And to personalize, I embroidered a heart with a monogram in the lower left-hand corner of the quilt top. All were embroidered with my Brother Quattro. Note, I used extra binding as an edge for the labels on the back. Here's photos of all.
