Origami Quilt: "Hearty" Butterfly

Inspired on Valentine's Day, I created a "Hearty" Butterfly quilt.
Origami Quilt:

The quilt is composed of Heart Modules (video instructions here), and Flower Modules. The Flower Module is a variation of the Heart Module. I haven't made instructions of the Flower Module yet, but they are easy to figure out, just fold the four quarters of the paper in the same way as the bottom quarters of the Heart Module. They connect with each other in a similar way.

I folded the quilt with 4 ½"(112 mm) and 2 ¼"(56 mm) squares, that I cut to size from 9" (225 mm) Pacon Paper Squares.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love the colours you have chosen to put together - very life-like, and very dramatic! There's no hiding that butterfly!

Thanks Kapila.
kkezir, the final butterfly it's pretty big, approximately 19" x 12" (475 mm x 300 mm).
