Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Ok I have to ask what is the " soft edge way to applique " ?
To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !

What a concept! Why didn't I think of that? lol
I have 7 machines. I use them all at different times, but it never occurred to me to set them up with different colors for thread painting. Too logical I guess! lol Thanks for the idea.
No particular method for me. I just find a quilt I would like to make, and if the technique is new, then I do it! I do like machine applique, and have a couple of projects in mind for it.
I really enjoy the stained glass wallhanging I made and I am still trying to perfect landscape quilting.
