This quilt is designed by Amy Maxfield, after the LDS Hymn "They the Builders of the Nation" (Hymn #36). "I have always loved and marveled at Pioneer stories and histories. I've wondered if I could have been a pioneer who never complained and survived the ordeal with an abiding love of God, and faith to move forward. Pioneer Day, celebrated on July 24th in Utah, has long been a favorite holiday. As a young girl, I would go to my Swedish Grandmother's house in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah and walk to the parade route on Main Street near Liberty Park. Every year I'd sit on a quilt laid out near the street. I was there with my cousins, aunts, and uncles, eating popsicles and cheering for the marching bands, the floats, and the horses. I see it clearly in my mind and what a happy memory it is. Still, I long to go to the parade every year to celebrate Pioneer Day!" Pattern has 46 pages.
