    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!

    Thanks for posting these templates. Funny how one topic question can be asked by different people on the same day! I need to remember to use the search button before posting. Thanks again for sharing your ideas.

    Thanks so much for sharing your lovely ideas! I just pulled out my UFO that's been sitting for awhile waiting for inspiration. Now maybe I will actually finish it!

    I've mae 3 one block wonders and have used template 1 - stitch in the ditch - for all of them -- it does not detract from the fabulous block placement.

    Your patterns are great. I've made one Karen Combs hexi quilt, and had the same quandry about quilting. I started looking at stencils and found a couple that were 6 pointed rather than 4 or 8 pointed, so I bought them both. Now they sit with the quilt top waiting to be used. Someday . . . . .

    These are excellent ideas!
    But, on another note, I don't understand why this post was deleted for something like copyright infringement or posting internet pictures. (I seem to stay confused about this particular issue.)
