Drawing Near to God: 2022 Monthly Bible Quilt Journal

Updated: Nov 20, 2021


Ready for an adventure in the Word next year? We've got a great line-up of monthly topics for 2022 under the overall theme for the year, "Drawing Near to God."


Twelve Bible Quilters from the U.S., Canada, and Germany have collaborated with me to generate the scripture reference lists for a variety of wonderful topics. In the journal there is a 2-page spread each month for you to write the daily verses for every monthly topic.

Ready for a sneak peek of our 2022 Monthly BQJ???



Each month will have a featured template that you can create with your choice of scriptures.


In addition to these formatted pages, you'll have the opportunity to #biblequilt your own designs on a blank two-page spread each month. You've got lots of options!


Take sermon notes or summarize a Bible study.


Download a template from the online shop to give you a jumpstart on a design.


Add a seasonal page with bright embellishments.


Make a prayer page for ongoing prayer requests you receive.


Create a page for a friend or family member going through a difficult challenge.


Brainstorm with other Bible Quilters on our monthly Zoom chats to get other ideas.



At the back of the journal are sets of Monthly tabs and Topic tabs that you can attach to your journal. A ruler and prayer card are tucked into the book pocket on the inside back cover.




There's also a flip card set that can be cut and put on a binder ring to give you a place to write the daily verses. I like to write out the full verses on the flip cards to get familiar with the scriptures we'll be focusing on that month. These little sets are convenient to carry around as we go about our daily activities, using them as a quick reference or memorization tool.


When I'm ready to start adding verses on the 2-page spread, I use the flip cards to help choose what key words or phrases to highlight as I #biblequilt. If the quilt square doesn't have enough room for the full verse, I choose the portion of the verse that has the most impact or synopsis of the scripture.

You can download more flip card sets if you'd like to develop this handy resource each month.

Or if you want to bypass the manual process of printing and cutting these each month, I've got some bundles of 11 monthly sets that are already printed and hole-punched. Available for local pick-up $25. (Long-distance peeps, send me a message and I'll see how I can accommodate adding these to your order.)


Hot off the presses, these journals are ready to roll out to YOU!


For our international friends and those who prefer to print at home to make your own modifications, here's a digital version:



If you'd like to save shipping costs, I created a combo with the BQ Calendar:

In the next few weeks I'll be sharing some tips re: preparing your 2022 journal for the coming year. In the meantime, you can browse this 2021 Monthly BQJ Prep post to help you get started!


I'm excited for all the opportunities to engage actively in the Word with you next year. Who's with me???
