Will it restart as soon as it quits? Do you have good flow of fuel from the tank to the carburetor inlet?

If it will not restart,check for spark by attaching spark plug wire to a spare spark plug, and with spark plug grounded, see if you have spark. If no spark, You may have a coil that is going bad.
