For a couple years I was really, really busy with a back log of 8-10 quilts at any given time. After I had been quilting for about 3 years, I raised my price--stopped charging by the square inch and charged by the hour, $20. I could show my customers the price per square inch was not much different than $20/hour if doing edge to edge designs. It was when they wanted custom quilting that the price for their quilts jumped significantly. In the last two years, my business has died--I still quilt for a couple friends but that is it. I travel from Montana to Arizona to spent winters in a warmer climate so I wonder if that is part of the reason business has gone--I'm not there to take their quilts. But, I really feel it was a price issue as I see these same customers who were largely friends of mine send their quilts to places such as Missouri Star. I'm totally NOT sorry I raised my prices and as I am fortunate enough not to have to quilt--I am OK with it.
Take some time off if you can as Mary Beth said--and come back with a new perspective!
