Magic Squares Origami Tessellation

I stumbled into this tessellation by accident. I was just playing around with the rectangle twists you can get from a triangle grid.

Quite unexpectedly I realized how the offsets of a single twist could gracefully flow into the next.

After that the pattern emerged quite readily.

It's an easy fold to execute. The results are pretty nice though.

I struggled with how to arrange the pattern. The folds that create the squares can all go in either an up or down pattern.

A diligent folder could probably alternate then from front to back. I just went with continuous rows of front folds.

Basic crease pattern is shown.
