Having just finished a rather large sampler quilt I feel that I have become quilted out. How do you suggest that I get my motivation back to start a new project?

A quick, small and simple project for "instant" gratification!

I pull out my patterns and start looking at fabric. That usually gets me pumped for a new project.

ROFL. I just pull out my quilt magazines and see something I like and it's off to quilting again. So many projects, sew little time. Have fun.

Just give yourself a rest. Sooner or later, your quilting mojo will return, begging you to take it back. "Baby, it'll be different this time, I promise." :D

A visit to a quilt shop that you don't get to very often might work.

Rejuvinate by hugging your stash. Something will probably hug you back.

Go Shopping! (at your local quilt store of course!)

I get inspired by going to a guild meeting or a quilt show and seeing all those wonderful quilts other people have made.

Go out and take a break from it, the beautiful colors of springtime will probably get you going again! Have fun!
