I'm looking for a pretty but rather simple pinwheel quilt pattern. Any assistance in this effort would be greatly appreciated.

Check out Quilter's Cache. If she doesn't have one, then you didn't look very long!--LOL.

My favorite Pinwheel type patterns are Louisiana, Double Pinwheel, & Twisting Star.

I saw one recently that had six big pinwheels, two by three, with white and a pattern. The six pinwheels were sashed with white, and the border outside of that was the pattern. It really made the pattern fabric pop, and the pinwheels almost seemed to float.

Simple but nice!

Rachel Griffith from PS I quilt had a pinwheel sampler quiltalong a while back. You can see post one here:

and the rest of the links (there were 8 different blocks) are on the right hand side of her blog right below the tutorials list.
