Believe it or not, over all these years of folding tessellations, I never folded a clean tiling of Fujimoto’s Hydrangea. I recently decided to make up for this omission, so here goes the classic.

As with most other similar designs, different molecule packing densities are possible (the one used here is called the dense packing). The edges (“leaves”) can also be finished in multiple ways depending on how many grid units of margin are left around the molecules proper. I plan to post examples of different edge finishes when time allows.
