An origami tessellation folded from a single sheet of paper is machine quilted and hand-bound. Origami and traditional quilting are thereby wedded through a straightforward approach. The design is a patchwork of dyadically-varying square tessellations that can be simultaneously folded on a single grid of squares and then quilted as if it were a regular quilt top. The introduction of fabrics and quilting transforms delicate, rigid paper into a substantial product with drape.
