Mosaic Quilt Mural

Join the 30th Anniversary Mosaic Quilt Mural

Quilts have been a tradition at the Mourning Hope Grief Center since the organization’s inception in 1994. As part of the Family Grief Support Group, every child and teen decorates a quilt block in memory of their significant person who has died. The blocks are then stitched together with those designed by other mourners, creating a quilt that symbolizes the shared understanding and support among those who have experienced a profound loss.

The Mosaic Quilt Mural, installed in 2020 as part of Mourning Hope’s capital campaign, honors the individuals and organizations who provide lasting support to Mourning Hope. Like our memorial quilts, the mural signifies the common bonds that emerge when people come together for remembrance, healing and hope. Its location in our Community Room emphasizes the importance of community connections and partnerships that have been the foundation of Mourning Hope’s operations for three decades.

To celebrate 30 years of service, we are expanding the existing mural and offering you a chance to participate. Join the latest edition of the Mosaic Quilt Mural by purchasing a permanent metal quilt tile to honor and commemorate someone special or to demonstrate your support. This opportunity will only be available between January and April 2024, and quantities are limited. Those who purchase a quilt tile during this timeframe will receive an exclusive invitation to Mourning Hope’s 30th anniversary party and mural unveiling in September 2024.
