Julianne Donofrio’s six-years-in-the-making film is set to debut August 11th at the national Quilt Trail Gathering in Greeneville, Tennessee. The film follows Donna Sue Groves, who started the quilt trail movement, where quilt squares are hung on barns along driving routes, creating an elaborate network that combines art and travel in unlikely places.
The feature length documentary, “Pieced Together,” follows Groves as she navigates through personal hardship and sheds light on the movement she began with her neighbors in Adams County, Ohio.
The quilt square movement has sprung up from this small community and has now gone nationwide, with trails in over 40 states and more forming in Canada and elsewhere.
Ms. Donofrio is a veteran filmmaker and news who previous worked for ABC News and Haddad Media. She is a graduate of Syracuse University.
The film’s website can be found here.
