We've had a blast creating with post-it notes the past few months, and I've had several people ask about how to line up the post-it notes on the BQJ page.
I've encouraged ladies to "eyeball it" starting from the center and working them out evenly spaced from the middle. Once a washi tape border is added, the alignment really doesn't matter anyway.
I think this issue was still rattling around in my brain though because I thought a simple 6-square template layout, complete with stitch lines, might be helpful to some of you.
I played around with printing one of these templates out on colored card stock as another option. It works great!
You can write your verses directly in the squares...or add sticky notes for an additional layer of color & texture.
The fun thing about this particular template is that you can orient it either horizontally or vertically.
I used a variety of post-it notes and some brightly colored banners left from another project.
Since there was so much visual detail using these elements, I decided to add just the reference rather than writing out the whole verse. (This is also another memorization trick. Use the main phrase and reference to trigger your memory to recall the remainder of the verse.)
Sometimes I'll leave a template loose so I can enjoy it in my environment a little longer before tucking it into my Bible Quilt Journal.
Typically I'll slip it into a page protector, then pin it to my bulletin board or use a magnet to hang it on the family white board.
