Quilt 1 - variation 4

This polyhedra unit is a very slight variation on the unit described here. The diagonal folds are slightly different, and this creates chunkier edges to the polyhedra.

The last picture above shows two units put together. The way of joining these units is pretty much the same as the way the units on this page were joined. In this case the units are easier to put together, but they don't hold together quite as strongly.

Here's some more polyhedra made from this unit (two views of each model):

Other variations on this unit are possible, for example, with even fewer diagonal folds:


Here's another variation (made with the crease pattern rotated 45 degrees with respect to the paper, as compared with the other variations of this unit):

Yet another variation can be made from hexagonal shaped paper, resulting in a model with three "legs" instead of four, which means the vertices of the polyhedra have degree 3:
