Breaking Dawn Charity Quilt: A Midnight Swim?

I've never taken a midnight swim....  I would imagine it would be very nice.  The one in Breaking Dawn was written in a way that had me craving one.  It rivaled all the other romantic scenes I have read through in the hundreds of romance novels I've read in my lifetime.

How would one create a quilt block to capture such a moment?!  In the past, I've used silhouettes for people in Twilight quilt blocks because, lets face it, people are hard to create with any detail at all in a 6" square.  One still has to be careful with silhouettes because they can turn into a blob-like mess.  Even a round moon can end up not being round if one isn't careful.

I've seen some pretty titillating fan art that has successfully captured the moment that has got me thinking again about how I would do it...

Be careful what you search for, though.....  LOL
