The last few weeks I've been back in my carpool gig, waiting for my cross country runners to finish up.
My Bible Quilt Journal tote has been back in action and provides me with all the supplies I need to make a little progress on my BQJ pages. If I'm thinking of topics or verses ahead of time, then I'm more likely to spend the "waiting" #biblequilting rather than scrolling on my phone.
I've been playing around with some of the new post-it templates. It's been easy to color in some of the sticky note squares one day, then add verses the next day.
One day all I did was do a washi tape border and add stitch lines around the perimeter yet it gave me a small boost of accomplishment and had me thinking about scripture, wondering what a "holy life" might look like during a pandemic...
I finished up the page over the next few days, adding some stickers at home for a bolder title.
Maybe it was sitting outside of a high school or thinking about these vertically oriented pages a little differently, but it occurred to me that these would fit inside student lockers.
Sure enough, I tried it on an old storage locker in our garage when we got home after practice and they fit great!!
Wouldn't this be an encouraging sight to see when a student opens her locker during a busy school day?? The #biblequiltjournal pages could be laminated or slipped into page protectors to give them more durability for locker life.
You could personalize it for a student in your life you want to encourage. Maybe you'd like to incorporate school colors or particular activities your students participate in? You could invite your kids/grandkids to do some BQJ pages with you to put on their lockers or to share with their friends. #biblequiltwithlove ❤️
