First place goes to Linda Baldor of Richardson, Texas for her beautifully crafted Grasshopper.
The details of this creature are stunning!
Second place goes to Amy Micallef of Brooklyn, NY for her Puss Moth Caterpillar (Megalopyge Opercularis). Awesome choice of insect. Disgusting and beautifully strange at the same time. Thank you Amy for introducing us to this little guy.
Third place goes to Liz Chesebrough for her quilted Yellow Jacket/Fly. Beautiful, intricate piecing on this lovely quilted cushion.
In the children’s contest, the winner is Ava Henschel!
Beautiful work Ava!
Runners up are Anne Therese Patrone-Griffin for her Butterfly and Dragonfly
and Sally Smith of Roswell, Georgia for her Rare Red-winged Proboscis Bug.
Thank you to all who submitted insects to us. We loved meeting all of them! We have 2 more insects that will be making their way to us a little late and I will post pictures of them on our facebook page. If anyone started but couldn’t finish in time or just wants to make an insect just for fun, we would be thrilled to have them join the gang. All our best, The Brooklyn General Store Gang: Catherine, Heather, Pia and Kate.
Here is the whole gang minus two.
