(Panguitch-AP) -- A quilt memorializing the victims of the September Eleventh terror attacks is traveling to Utah.

The United In Memory Nine-Eleven Victims Memorial Quilt will be on display at the Triple "C" Arena in Panguitch tomorrow.

The quilt is made up of 142 panels and stretches over a quarter mile long.

More than 36-hundred volunteers from all over the world chose a victim to memorialize and created a block of quilt using pictures, love letters, patches and drawings.

More than 80-thousand man-hours were put into making the entire quilt and it was put together by hundreds of volunteers in Long Beach, California.

The quilt will be on display until Saturday.
