Here's a polygon pattern that relies on a simple recursive call. Each heptagon attaches to two scaled down heptagons and each of those heptagons attaches to two more etc. This recursive definition is easy to do in PolygonR&D. The tightness of the spiral is determined by the main shrinking factor--the difference in size of the heptagon to the next biggest heptagon.
