Pieced Together Documentary

We spent Sunday recording Scott Pender's soundtrack, Foothills, for the Pieced Together Project Documentary by filmmaker, Julianne Donofrio (I know - a lot of links but its a collaboration!).

The music is beautiful and such a great accompaniment to this phenomenal story that celebrates community and art in a unique and vibrant way.

Just google 'quilt trail' and you'll see the extraordinary network that has built up around this one simple idea - paint a quilt trail on an old barn. Donna Sue Groves, a native Appalachian, purchased a farm in Ohio that included an old tobacco barn.  To honor her mother, an avid quilter, Donna Sue came up with the idea to have a quilt block painted on the aging structure.

Barn Quilts grew from this small idea in Adams County, Ohio.  The Quilt Trail movement has now spread to at least 30 states and two Canadian provinces.
