Make bigger blocks. Change the type of quilts you make – add appliqué or switch to paper piecing. Copy someone’s style outright. Rearrange your stash. Go shopping! Go shopping with a friend and buy each other some fabric. Buy a new quilt book or magazine. Buy a kit. Make a bag. Take your cues from a photo. Take your colour cues from the selvage of one fabric.
