    THE BLOG

    Today I am going to keep it short, sweet & simple. I have loved the shape of the quatrefoil for a quite sometime now and wanted to post a few of my favorite images with the beautiful shape. I love the shape so much that it has become a part of my soon to launch newly designed website and blog. Come back tomorrow for a sneak peek!

    Here are a few fabulous facts about the quatrefoil:

    -In Christianity, each of the leaves of the quatrefoil have symbolized the four evangelists of the Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

    -In Native American culture, the four leaves of the quatrefoil are believed to symbolize the four ends of the earth. This represents Native American prayers to the North, South, East, and West.

    -According to the Seattle First Baptist Church, the quatrefoil is an ancient symbol of good luck.

    -Since it is easy to divide a quatrefoil into equal portions or into other shapes, it has also come to symbolize harmony, symmetry, and proportion.

    6. Abbe, thanks for doing the legwork. I enjoyed the history lesson! That is such a graceful shape, and it does create a sense of harmony, doesn’t it? (I especially like the soothing wallpaper in that last pic.)
