The Irish Coven: Celtic Sunrise, Anyone?

In my quest to find appropriate block ideas for the Breaking Dawn Charity Quilt that are inspired quilt representations of Stephenie's written word, I usually find so many examples to use that making a decision is next to impossible.

Try Googling celtic quilt patterns for instance!

One of my goals is to have my blocks be fairly self explanatory.  I don't really want anyone looking at my blocks and saying to themselves, "What is that supposed to be?!"  We've probably all had that experience recently......

I can't make up my mind about the Irish Coven block.

Quilter's Cache has a block that would be good and it's paper pieced!  It's called Celtric Sunrise. (link)  Even the name is appropriate.

My other favorite is an image I found online by searching for celtric shamrock:

(only credit I have is here)

I might replace Irish with √Čireannach.

I guess I'd need to figure out if I'm up to learning a new technique:

Other updates:

This is all I can manage right now.  I'm still sick.  I worked out the Isle Esme house on graph paper but I can't figure it out in EQ7.  My lines keep getting messed up because I can't figure out "snapping".  I at least know what size it will be.  I also diagrammed all the elements for the quilt back on graph paper.  Oh, my gosh!  I looked at the Jaguar pattern and it looks impossible.  I don't think the fabrics are color coded well enough for me and I don't have the money to go buy fabric anyway.  I also have a plan for the Preface block--a pregant Bella.  If I could just bring myself to sew.....
