The Bootcamp utility you used to create the partition can also remove it.

delete the windows 7 partion in disk utility by highlighting it and hit the minus symbol onces its deleted it will just be a grey area, than you can drag the bottom corner of your OSX partion to fill the entire drive than hit apply

Removing the BootCamp partition

Open Boot Camp Assistant (Applications / Utilities /) and remove the Windows partition.
Here is a guide in images (which have to be clicked in order to see the full resolution, as they are too big for this thread):

Open Boot Camp Assistant via Spotlight (or any other means you prefer)

Press Continue

Select the shown selection

Select the shown selection

Select the disk with the Boot Camp partition if you have more than one disk inside your Mac and then select the shown selection

Press Restore

Enter your admin account password

See the partitioning progress, it can take some minutes depending on the size of the Windows partition and if you have an SSD (faster) or HDD (slower)

Boot Camp partition has been successfully removed, you can quit Boot Camp Assistant if you want
