HI,love the nautical theme with blue shades all the way to light greens of the water!
Thanks for sharing!
I love the crisp white with navy and red!
Would love a chance. I'm currently working on a maritime baby quilt, so am already in the mood for all things nautical. 🙂
What I love most on a nautical theme is the colour schemes. Specifically crisp white with primary colours. 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway!
I think I love the colors of a nautical theme the most, they just seem so calm and cool.
Water and all it's colors.
I love the colours and the memories of holiday associated with it.
I love anchors and sailboats. This mag looks fantastic!
My favourite things about nautical are the crisp colours and I love nautical flags! Thanks for the giveaway!
I love beach huts, aquas and yellows, navy and white stripes. jennylarking at gmail dot com
I love the little paper umbrellas in my beverage as i sit on the porch of a fancy hotel, gazing over the sailboats getting ready for a race. Ok, everything except the umbrella and drink is imaginary.
Um, bucket and spade…….too much time spent with the kids I think! Jx
Gorgeous bag and a brilliant size.
Nautical for me is blue and white and what can be better than loving blues!
I'm really into lobsters right now. used lobster fabric in my last quilt, love the bright red
My favourite nautical thing is my memories. Ha! Life at sea should be experienced by everyone. Love the bag you have in this issue too.
The calming colours of nautical themes always soothe me …must confess I think jmj's comment above is actually very creative !
I think sailboats are lovely on a nautical themed item, especially a quilt for a little boy.
I love the ocean and all of its glory. I love the combination of navy and white.
I love horizontal stripes! A crisp narrow blue and white is lovely, but the same in red and white is pretty good too. Thanks!
love blue and white with sometimes a bit of red thrown in. The first 2 quilts I ever made (when I had no idea about quilting were nautical themed)
I love navy blue on nautical themes and crisp white.
I love the red and blue combo and anything that has a beach feel to it especially shells and the ocean,
I'm not familiar with this magazine and I love checking out new items for quilters. Definitely fond of magazines. And fond of all things Nautical. For me, while I enjoy all nautical colors, there is something cool and crisp about blues/whites with a nautical theme. And they all just remind me of fun, fishing, summer, relaxing.
PS – I'm actually on a boat while I'm visiting your blog. 🙂
I love the beach and boats and driftwood, are any of those a nautical theme? I would love to win the magazine, thank you for the chance.
Love the colors and anything with boats on it. Thanks for the chance
Hey, congratulations on having a bag in print! I like colourful parrots that sit on the shoulders of pirates!! Blue and white works together particularly well too.
I love all of the oceanic blues, and navy is great as it goes with just about any other colour – I am especially loving it with coral and mint at the moment. Thanks for the chance to win.
I love a good navy. I love an anchor print too! Thanks for the chance to win ;c) shopgirl7232(at)yahoo.com
I love the ocean so I guess the clean, crisp blues make me think of the ocean smells and sound. You can't beat that salt air.
I now ljust about as far from the sea as you can get in mainland Europe, so basically anything nautical sets my heart a fluttering! Quilting mags are pretty rare too here, so thanks for the chance to win one – they don't have them at wh smiths at Gatwick when I was travelling through last week.
I love a rope design, not sure why, but printed or stitched, or rope mats, rope balls, very tactile!
I love blue and white together. Nautical themed quilts make great gifts for baby boys!
got a copy already, fab bag feature sweetie!
I love sea colours and seagulls!
I still haven't found a copy of this magazine!!
Nautically speaking, I love sailboats, thanks to my sailing Dad! I love quilts of blues and aquas, and I think of totes when I think of going to the beach!!! Sweet giveaway, Thanks!
I love the versatility of a nautical theme. You can go whole hog, with sailboats and anchors and fish, or you can be more subtle with red or navy and white stripes or a wavy blue pattern. It's so fun!
I love crisp blues with oatmeal and dark reddish wood. Our bedroom is done in those colors but I still need to make a quilt for us. I am intimidated by three cal King bed
I love navy with crisp white stripes and rope- gotta incorporate rope somehow!
I love the water and the boats.
I have a nautical themed hallway. It has shells, boats, fishnets, sharks teeth, paintings of the seashore. What I love most is the memories these things bring back. 24Tangent@gmail.com
I am a big fan of crisp white and my husband was in teh ROyal Navy for 24 years so I do like battleshio grey as well!!! amycav at hotmail dot com
I really like lighthouses. The history behind them and how they look are inspiring to me.
I love the dark blue and white. Thanks for the chance.
I love all shades of blue in a nautical theme. Anything that makes me think of being on the water makes me smile. I love the colors and the cording on your bag. Thanks for sharing the inspiration and the chance to win!
On holiday at this very moment, looking out on an azure sea and creamy sands all under a perfect Spring sky…..and loving it!! Had coffee this morning at a cafe overlooking the ocean, then back to our apartment to sit on the patio and read in the sun, watching seagulls reel overhead and boats sway gently on the incoming tide. I don't want to go home!!
I love blue and white stripes! email@example.com
Ooh Boy!! Thanks for the opportunity! I dont need anchors for a nautical theme, a crisp white and shades of blue, navy through the lightest seafoam, transport me right to the sea!!
Love blue water colors….shades of blues to aqua's & white! Love Sailboats too…
I've made a sailboat quilt from 'Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted gifts'. Like it very much!
I love designs w/ lighthouses! thank you!
I love the smell of the sea. Even though I am in a city centre and several miles away from the sea, if the tide is high and the wind in the right direction, occassionally I get the smell of it.
I do love the ship's wheel – especially when it is done in navy blue and white. Thanks!

My favourite nautical inspired quilt is the Storm at Sea. In ocean colours, divine!
I love the colors of nautical!
Rubber Duckies are my favorite nautical theme!
The thing I love most about nautical themes is the fact that most include some shade of blue…my favorite color! thanks for the chance to win!
As I leap balletically . . . I enjoy the sunset behind a sailboat 🙂
I love the sailor flap and the crisp clean lines. 🙂 Thanks for the chance.
I never gave a nautical theme much thought, but I love blue an white so a nautical baby quilt would be fun to make:)
I like stripes and waves and boats and seagulls 🙂 I love sea as we don't have any so the nautical theme is usually associated with vacation to me, lol. Thx.
I really love anchors, and the crisp colors.
Erm? I'm waiting for lunchtime, so all I can think of is the yuuuuummy poke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poke_%28Hawaii%29) I had last night. Also, nautical briefs. 😀
I love blue and white stripes and anything to do with beach cabins!
Blue and white is a classic combo… And I love anything to do with sea, sand and sails!!
Nautical is all about navy and white for me. Classic and a favourite!
Nautical, for me, is the navy blue, crisp white with a touch of red. Beautiful!!
My first thought when you said nautical was submarine but that is because my son-in-law is on one. (I also thought about sailboats.)
I love those colors and I sail a lot so the theme is close to my heart 🙂
I'm all about the anchor on nautical things!
Blue and white stripes. 🙂
I also someday want to make an ocean-inspired quilt, but I'm thinking lighter colors than what is traditionally used for nautical themes.

Nautical fabrics usually have such a clean look about them. Thanks for the opportunity to see this magazine.
I love blue and white together!
i like navy blue white and red! and my hubby loves the ocean so i want to do a nautical themed quilt for him 🙂
Always bright and fresh.
I love sailboats and anchors, in crisp colors of navy, white and red. My son is attending Direct Commissioning School for the Coast Guard in January, so I am looking for ideas of what I can make for him. I would also like to try the 6" quilting ruler. Thank you for the chance to win!
I like the nautical theme because it has clean, bright colors. Lots of blue and white.
Nautical can give you an interesting cross between modern and traditional. Clean lines, limited colour palettes.
I love all the different shades of blue and green that you see in the water.
