Story of the Chevron

For interior decorating enthusiasts, the chevron pattern is a popular and bold accent for any room, but many people may not know what the chevron actually is or what it means as a symbol. A chevron is an inverted v-shaped pattern, which, if we got technical with the definition, would mean that the majority of patterns that claim to be chevron actually are not. A chevron is also used in architecture as a supporting structure for a roof. The military also uses the chevron as insignia to indicate rank or status. Ancient Greek art located on the island of Crete is some of the first to have the chevron design on its pottery. Chevron also appear in heraldry, which is a broad term for anything relating to armor or government status. This design was especially popular in Normandy, and in Scandinavia, the pattern was known as sparre. You probably didn’t know these interesting facts about such a popular pattern, but once you make this fun quilt, you can tell people all that you’ve learned about its pattern!
