This is a chevron
NOT a chevron.*
These are *ZIG ZAG* patterns.
I don't care what some quilt pattern 'creator' huckster boob calls their design, and I do not give a tinker's doggone for the naming convention of a fabric company. A zig zag is a never-ending series of lines - think Charlie Brown's sweater. True chevrons are PAIRS of lines, forming a 'v', whether inverted or 'right way up'.
There, I almost feel better, but not happy knowing there will still be SO MANY people calling a zig zag patchwork quilt a "chevron-something-or-other" when it's not correct. Help me spread the word, to correct the misuse of a word.
