Four orphan blocks,

Based on the same structure as the Turkey Tracks in the last post.
BlockBase #2668, Nancy Cabot in the Chicago Tribune called it Violet Blossoms,
The Ladies Art Company--- Bleeding Heart
The center square in a square goes around three times in the BlockBase drawing

Nettie Freier from the Michigan Project
Two late-20th-century examples from the Quilt Index.
Golda Stone Caudill from the Indiana Project
None of these match my drawing.

Here's a quick quilt of #2668
Modified to Carrie Hall's simpler version.
It would be challenging to piece, But you could just wing it in applique.
