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:
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.
