Staying True

Here's my April block for the Quilt Square Quilt Along at Jo's Country Junction.  For April, we were to select the block of our choice from those remaining in Lori Smith's Quilt Squares #1 pattern.  I chose the applique block.  I had started this block with needle turn applique, but quickly decided that I would not have time to finish it before the end of April, so I made a second block and used the machine applique method.  Did I need to make 2 blocks?  No...but I wanted to stay with my commitment to make a block each month.  I prefer the needle turn applique method, but wanted to take my time and do a respectable job on the workmanship.  As with previous months, I used my Kansas Trouble scraps.
