    Hi!
    Thank you Lois!
    quiltingcurious, answering your questions about how to design in paint would be very hard. I couldn't begin to attempt a tutorial, but i did find two web pages from Microsoft that explain the basics very well:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows7/products/features/paint
    http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows7/Using-Paint

    The more you fool around with it, the quicker you learn. I love Paint, even more than Photoshop Elements, although that is because I haven't learned how to use PE as well yet.
    I use the copy and paste feature the most, when I have a design with repetitive elements like these templates.

    I also use Paint to supplement my EQ design software. Its a great tool!

    You asked what size hexagon I use. The picture in Paint isn't any particular size. If you need a life size pattern to follow, you would scale them when you print the page to fit the size of the hexagons in your One Block Wonder. Before the QB changed over, you could click on the "Download" button under each picture and tranfer it to your computer. That option has for some reason disappeared.

    I hope this helps you.

    I sure wish I had seen this post before I quilted mine. I was stuck and ended up with quilt in the ditch. It is nice, but it could have been so much nicer.

    Your post has given me much to think about when I plan the quilting on my next quilt.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the info you put on QB in 6/11. Believe I could work with the first template you listed for my SandW quilt. First I need to get a pic on the QB for all to see the top.

    These designs are wonderful. I have made 6 OBW's and these would have come in handy. I will bookmark for the future. I just know I will do another at some point. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Carrying this post into it's third year...
    I am getting ready to make my first OBW quilt. I'm still looking for the perfect fabric for it. These quilting designs are all great and I'm looking forward to trying them out on my long arm. Sometimes when you are quilting a repeat design you can find easier ways to connect designs or ways to give a little change in them every once in a while. Thanks for giving a place to start if not a way to finish. Great work!
