For the modern category, here's one of my Fussy Cut Scrappy Squares. The block is my own design and is a great way to use scraps! It's a 12.5 inch square. I wrote a tutorial for the block. The link is on my sidebar if you're interested in giving it a try.
Below is a quilt I made using all blocks like this.
For my Creative category entry, this is a house block I made for a swap. It is also 12.5 inches, free-pieced as I went along.
