Pie Time Puzzle

I enjoyed this Pie Time Puzzle as it sure is delightful to see these yummy pies and fun comments on the image.  Not only do the Pies look so delicious, the other treats look quite tasty too. It was nice to have the background patterns in the light blues as that was helpful to assist with the assembly here. Of the three puzzles in this series, Cupcakes and Donuts,  I found this one to be the most tricky with the brownish dough pie colours.

Pie Time Puzzle Assembly

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. 

Of late, I have added another step to my sorting routine. When I pull out the edge pieces, I line them up which helps with the layout when it comes time to do the border.  However, I did layout all the rest of the pieces onto boards and once again, I forgot to take photos as I was pumped on getting this one going. 

These puzzle come with a very nice quality poster as you can see in the above image.  I was pretty excited to work this on and totally forgot to take my usual border photo.

You can see how I started with the text on the image along with some of the outstanding larger colour details in checkered reds and blues. Then the flow got going and it was all about pattern details in the fruit, pie images.

Pie Time Puzzle Comments

I got totally wrapped up in assembling the Pie Time Puzzle as it was kinda addictive and delightful.  That is not uncommon with these types.  I took many photos to share the Quotes which are a highlight of the puzzle however it is still difficult to read the smallest ones in the images.

I really do enjoy doing food jigsaw puzzles and have several completed by different Brands. One of my most favourite food puzzles is really  a candy image and is by Cobble Hill puzzles too, it's titled Holiday Candy  - it sure was challenging to assemble and I do put it on my wall every Christmas.  

I also want to mention how nice the matte finish is on the Cobble Hill puzzles. They are non glare images and they feel so nice when my hands do the 'once-over' upon completion of the puzzles.
