CLINTON, Iowa – The 10th Mercy Hospice Quilt recently was unveiled by the designer and quilter Sue Tappe.

The Midwestern Hospice Butterfly quilt was designed to convey the message of nature’s beauty. Annually, these quilts list those who have died and had been touched, in any way, by the services of Mercy Hospice care providers. Families are encouraged to touch the name of their loved ones stitched in the quilt.

Midwestern Hospice Butterfly is on display at the North Campus in the visitors hallway on the first floor of Mercy Medical Center, 1410 N. Fourth St.
