Camelias Origami Tessellation

 This is a tessellation that while it was easy enough to conceive, it was a bit of a struggle to execute. In some ways, those are the best kind. 

It's very densely packed and requires a lot of patience as well as some pretty sturdy paper. 

My paper wasn't quite as sturdy as I would've liked, but it got the job done. 

The first time I attempted this, I got pretty far, but not all the way to completion. 

This was my second attempt and I'm pretty pleased with the finished product. 

There's a very basic  origami model that looks very similar to the modules that make up this tessellation.

It's called the camelia. It's not the same, but as soon as I saw the central fold, I was reminded of it. I can still recall learning it years ago when I was still new to origami. 

Wonderful what bubbles up from the back reaches of our minds to inspire new creations. 

I still need to take a pic of the crease pattern. Will add that at a later date. 

Update: Crease pattern added below.
