COMMENTS

A 7pillow is a generalized Aztec pillow. The 7pillow of order n is a rotationallysymmetric region. It has a 2 X 2n central band of squares and then steps up from this band with steps of 7 horizontal squares to every 1 vertical square and steps down with steps of 1 horizontal square to every 1 vertical square.
