Hi, I'm Stephie! (graphic) © Stephanie Boon, 2016 www.DawnChorusStudio.com

Welcome to Dawn Chorus Studio, the colourful place for quilters. I’m the quilter and pattern designer behind the studio door and I’m really glad you’re here!

If you love colour with some hand quilting and improv design added to the mix, you’ve come to the right place.  The website is being updated at the moment, so thanks for your patience while we get things sorted.  There’s still lots to see and you can use the menu above to find your way around – the Take A Tour section’s a great place to start. Stay a while and enjoy your visit!
