Playing with Slippery Triangles

It's been a while since I have posted a pattern. I guess it's been busy. I modified Slippery Triangles to make this. The original purple triangles were replaced with limited Sierpinski's triangles I'll include the first couple of iterations. I put red triangles as the initial triangles so that it would be clearer what the progression was. I made sure that the purple triangles didn't get too small otherwise they would be difficult to see.

One of the things that I find appealing about this pattern is the slightly out of alignment of the triangles. It introduces a bit of conflict into the pattern. As well, by stopping the replacement of triangles at a coarse level I think that it suggests the a fractal pattern but stops short. Perhaps I'm over thinking this one.
