This Monthly BQ journal 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!


This file is formatted to print on standard letter-sized paper (8.5" x 11"), two-sided flipped on the long edge. For the interior pages, I like to print on 67-lb vellum bristol paper that has a lovely texture for a writing and shading with colored pencils or gelatos. My favorite pens, medium Papermate Flairs, do not bleed through this thickness of paper.


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. 


This 100-page journal  includes a page of colorful  topic and month tabs.  You may want to print the tab sheets and flip card pages on heavier card stock for durability. Keep them out separate to cut and use in conjunction with the BQ journal.


The last 6 pages of the download is a flip card set which can be used to catalogue daily verses for your selected theme for each month. If you're interested in additional flip card sets, there's a printable version of the blank set available. I'll also be releasing some preformatted typed sets of each monthly topic.


Once you've got your pages printed, you can take them to a local print shop to have bound with a plastic coil (similar to picture shown in the listing of the physical journal). If you prefer not to have the journal bound, you may 3-hole punch the pages and place them directly into a 3-ring binder or insert into page protectors, then put in a binder. If you're using page protectors, then you could print the file one-sided and insert the pages back-to-back. It will make your journal thicker overall, but allow you greater flexibility for adding/moving pages around. Since the pages will be loose, you can choose to work on one page at a time, then re-insert into your binder. 


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 around the US 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!


Note: This journal is NOT dated so it can be used for any year. That allows you to jump in with these themes at anytime! 


I hope this digital version of the Building Upon a Firm Foundation: Monthly Bible Quilt journal provides you with some flexible options, especially my international friends that have the challenge of ordering physical products due to high shipping costs.
