"Pieced Together" is the first documentary film about the American quilt square trail movement. Directed by Peabody Award-winning veteran of ABC News, Julianne Donofrio, "Pieced Together" tells the story of how one woman's love for her mother changed the American landscape and saved her life after job loss, breast cancer, and multiple health concerns. Now over 40 U.S. states and parts of Canada have quilt square trails. There are more than 260 trails and countless squares found on barns, garages, and fences from California to Tennessee to Prince Edward Island. Donna Sue never planned on creating a cross-country community but it is this very community of friends and strangers that is helping her put the pieces of her life back together.
