Sewing appliques onto squares can be tricky if you want a clean look on the back. Using a running stitch will show all the seams on the back of the crochet piece you are crocheting it on to.
When sewing crochet appliques onto crochet blankets or other pieces of crochet, it is ideal to not see any of the sewing on the back unless you are covering it with a different fabric.

More Tips on Sewing on Appliques
You can also sew appliques on with invisible/clear thread. This will allow you to use a quick running stitch without seeing where the applique is sewn on.
