If you hear a verse that you want to add to a page, jot it down on a post-it and put it on that page for later when you've got more time to be creative with it.
For example, if you're doing the #abcsofthebible and see a verse on "Rejoice!" that you want to incorporate on your "R" page, then write down the word and scripture reference on a post-it for later.
Stuck in traffic or waiting in a carpool line?
Have one of your kiddos be your scribe and start a brainstorming game about words/phrases in the Bible that start with the letter-of-the-week. "B" is for... beloved, beautiful, blessed, beatitudes, brothers, etc. Then the next time you sit down to work on your "B" page, you've got some great starters!
How do YOU use post-its in your Bible Quilting??
In this ZOOM session, we talk about a variety of ways to use post-its:
You can use small post-its to add a bright color as a quilt square background:
Or you can do a full post-it page, using regular size post-its (3x3). Simply glue them in the color pattern you want and use washi tape to add a sweet border design, framing each square.
This was a quick one I did as an example using sticker verses:

If you've got some cute post-its, you can play around with patterns and shapes to set up a page to do in the future. I've got this page "wallpapered" with decorative post-its so it's ready to fill in with scripture when I've got a theme figured out for it. These cute post-it note sets make great gifts to go along with Bible Quilt Journal kits!
**This is a great tip for traveling. Have all your embellishments already on the page, then all you have to do is add your verses. You won't have to tote the extra supplies or feel like you're "missing" something.
