Origami tessellations span the range from relaxingly repetitive to impossibly perplexing, especially when they are folded from crease patterns.
This crease pattern collection has 13 tessellations that cover that whole range while being foldable one twist at a time (none require precreasing, although it can be helpful for a first attempt).
The dominant feature of this collection is new arrangements of twist shapes (tilings) and altered symmetry applications on standard tilings.
These tessellations were featured on the Gathering Folds Instagram page in the winter of 2023 and represent a small fraction of Madonna Yoder's total designs.
Several of the patterns have links to video tutorials, and all link to a video of Madonna discussing the pattern and also to a list of suggested patterns to practice first.
The tessellations included are:
- Ripple Effect
- Flying Fish
- Open Lens Stars
- Showcase (Joisel Award Winner in 2023)
- Stepping Stones
