Download and stitch this attractive cross-stitch design of the Salt Lake Temple (East Towers). The stitched design will be a treasured keepsake! This Salt Lake Temple (East Towers) cross-stitch pattern download contains a counted cross-stitch chart, two pages of detailed instructions, the color key, a colored rendering of the temple pattern, and a black & white outline of the temple. The design size of the temple is 51 x 89 squares. It is 51 x 97 squares if the name of the temple is included, and more if personalization is added. The pattern was designed looking toward the East side of the Salt Lake temple. This view includes the tallest tower topped with the Angel Moroni and the two original golden doors with stairs where families and newly married couples gather for photographs. The site for the temple was chosen by Brigham Young on July 28, 1847, just four days after arriving in the valley. Ground was broken on April 6, 1853 and the temple was dedicated on April 6, 1893 by President Wilford Woodruff, exactly 40 years later. It was the fourth temple in operation constructed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the fourth temple in the state of Utah.
Photographs of the Salt Lake Temple (East Towers) were used as guides in the creation of the basic design. The trees, bushes and landscape details can easily be changed, added to, or deleted according to the preference of the stitcher. The finished project can be personalized with names and dates using the alphabet and numbers provided in the pattern. The gift of a personalized, event-dated, attractively-framed rendering of the temple will be a life-long treasure for those who received eternal blessings and promises in that sacred House of the Lord.
