April's Purple Passion Heart Square

I wish I could take credit, but I got the idea from a coaster pattern I saw on here. It was based on a granny, but I didn't like the holes so I played with it a little and made it a little more "solid" if that makes sense. :)

The coaster that was the inspiration:
