Assembly of the Avian Friends Jigsaw Puzzle

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border went together fairly quickly. There is a nice poster included with this puzzle which is an added bonus!

First I did the purple bird, then yellow birds, then green birds, then red and/or black birds, leaving the browns and greys to the last.

 That left the colored pastel backgrounds which went pretty quickly too.

Comments about the Avian Friends Jigsaw Puzzle

The artist for the Avian Friends jigsaw puzzle is Geninne D Zlatkis. She lives in Mexico with her husband and 2 children. The perfect color combinations on the birds is very creative. The soft color pastel background on the birds really enhances the overall image. To see more of her artwork CLICK HERE 

The finish is very nice on the Avian Friend jigsaw puzzle and the piece quality has a nice feel and is very good. It comes with a poster, the pieces are bagged in thicker plastic than most puzzle bags and the box is solid, plus pretty.

This type of puzzle image, known as a collage, went quite quickly, just under 8 hours. It may be surprising but this is the VERY first time I have completed a 1000 piece puzzle from start to finish (in between my daily duties) in one day!

Also the Avian Friends puzzle is said to be the #1 best seller at Galison's Puzzles and is perfect for a newbie to 1000 pieces puzzles.  I have done hundreds of puzzles so I can easily and highly recommend it! Take a look at the gorgeous close up images below.

I have also had the pleasure of assembling the 2000 pieces Galison puzzle titled Rainbow Seashells
