Literature

Rectangular block with small rectangular multicolored dark strips of fabric. The strips are pieced together at their sides, each a step down or up from the next to form a V pattern that stretches from left to right. White pyramids formed by horizontal strips stacked on top of one another stretch towards the center V from bases that start on the top and bottom of the block.
