The paper choice wasn't the best, but I was happy that I managed to complete this tessellation without too many problems. I'll have to fold this again with better paper.

Paper: hexagon with a side length of 7.5cm (from a 15cm square), mother-of-pearl paper
Model: hexagon with a side length of 4.7cm

model looks fine to me...

I think you've done a great job folding this. When i folded the Rhombic Flowers it was a disaster. By the way, I think Eric has a crease pattern of the aztec twist on his website.
