Repeating Roadkill Roses Tessellation

 

For some reason I find it harder to wrap my mind around square grid tessellation crease patterns. Hexagonal/triangular ones just make so much more sense to me. 

Still, just to add variety, sometimes I try to come up with one or fold someone else's. 

In this case I found this crease pattern that Robin Scholz had uploaded for 'Roadkill Rose' by Philip Chapman-Bell. 

Apparently Bell did a single molecule and then Scholz tessellated it. 

I had to modify it slightly to fit my 32 pleat grid. 

In hindsight, I would've liked to space the repeats even closer together.

I had pretty weak paper and was still able to get a nice finished product. 

It's an interesting design.
