Toni...Google...that's how I ended up with 3 word doc full "copy/paste" pic. Not to mention three 3 ring binders of "Possible Future Quits", Quilts I Wanna Do", "Quits Done Once or Twice." (Oh my aching head)

I don't have a problem picking the "next" project. I have a problem staying on task with that project! I get side-tracked by the next shiny bauble that comes along. I then start working on that until something else comes along! I currently have 2 tops that need to be sandwiched and finished, 3 that I have started, and....another I started at 11:00 PM last night! I need to stop looking and focus on sewing!

I usually always have at least a few ideas when I start a new quilt.

Lots of good ideas. And some I've never thought of.
For several years, I've been downsizing my stash making comfort quilts. So when I find an interesting straight line/no triangle pattern, that becomes my next project and make 4-8 of them, until I run out of fabric that fits the project or get tired of the pattern.
The opposite works too, pull fabrics I want to work with and find a pattern that fits with the amount available of each fabric.
