Open Back Hexagon Flowers

This is a fun design that was inspired by a Lydia Diard design I folded not long ago. It's a similar structure.

It begins with an open back hexagon twist at the center. That is then surrounded by more hexagons.

The interesting part is how they connect. Single pleat veins are squashed and flattened where each corner of the central hex meets the surrounding hex petals. This creates the appearance of another layer hiding behind the hexes.

The hexagons can continue tessellating out from each other infinitely.

This design would be really stunning applied to a larger grid.

The front and back of the design are shown.
The third image is a very crude crease pattern formation. It illustrates pretty clearly how the vertices of the hexes are flattened and connected.
