We prove NP-completeness of deciding whether a given loop of colored right
isosceles triangles, hinged together at edges, can be folded into a specified
rectangular three-color pattern. By Contrast, the same problem becomes
polynomially solvable with one color or when the target shape is a tree-shaped
