I have recently returned to designing and folding origami tessellations.... I am particularly interested in sequences of tessellation folds. The starting point might be a variation on the tradtional square twist tato purse type fold, or the traditional origami pinwheel, which were developed by Fujimoto into tessellations. Then I like to find a way to build up to an infinite sequence of folds.

This was inspired by attending the BOS convention, April 2019. This is not so much a sequence, more origami's on a related theme. The first was something I brought to show, and the rest constructed afterwards. I will add a description in pdf soon.
This is a very elementary tessellation, but for completeness I felt I had to make a though investigation of variations on this simple theme. Some folded examples are here, and the paper you can download by clicking on the last image in the row has diagrams of up to 100 cases. Actually there are some repeats, so not quite 100, but quite a lot!
Another variation of the brick wall. This time, I don't change the direction of creases, (except in one, which I couldn't resist; necessary for flat folding), but rather changed size of the rectangular bricks. Click last image for a description
