This Monthly BQ journal (2022) was designed to provide you with a year's worth of 28-, 30-, and 31-day formatted two-page spreads as well as an assortment of featured templates for you to create with each month. A monthly calendar page is included for you to use as a place to track devotional readings, your Bible-reading plan, Bible study assignments, BQ monthly themes & daily verses, the letter-of-the-week for the ABC Bible Quilt Journal, etc. I've enjoyed using mine as a devotional planner and it's helped me be more intentional in my time in the Word!
Two blank pages are integrated between the monthly layouts to offer you space to create your own pages, take sermon notes or add other BQ templates. Listing photos show some sample pages and decorated reference lists in progress.
This 98-page journal has a clear protective front cover, which allows it to still be visible after you personalize the white cover. It includes a set of topic and month tabs. Inside the back cover is a book pocket with a small ruler and a prayer card.
At the back of the Monthly BQJ is a flip card set which can be used to catalogue daily verses for your selected theme for each month. Once you tear out these extra pages from the back of your journal, you'll have extra "growing room" as you add embellishments to your pages throughout the year. If you're interested in additional flip card sets, there's a printable version available or you can add a bundle of eleven sets to complete your twelve for the year.

Join the Bible Quilt community as we explore a different theme each month and focus on a daily verse about that topic. We'll be chatting about our experiences in monthly Zoom chats and sharing pages-in-progress on the website and in the Bible Quilt Journal Facebook group. I'm grateful for the Bible Quilters from the US, Canada, and Germany who helped create scripture reference lists for our 12 topics in this uniquely designed journal. This is a wonderful way to stay in the Word together, encouraging each other as we go!
