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. 

Rather than place ALL the pieces on a separate board, I laid out the color piles around the board.

The border was fairly easy to place even though some of the pieces were the same color.

I decided to start with the big chunks of color first being purple, then red. Then I did pinks and blues. Next would be the patterns associated with colors. That left the patches of creamy beige colors to finish it off.

Comments

The Artist, Frank Lloyd Wright June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed.

Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. (Wikipedia)

The information on the back of the box explains the details of the May Basket artwork.

The finish is very nice on the Pomegranate jigsaw puzzles. This is the very first one of this Brand I have tried/owned. They are not common in my area. That said, I was delighted to locate this one at my local Thrift Store for $1.00 and be lucky enough to have ALL the pieces for assembly.

I highly recommend trying Pomegranate jigsaw puzzles as I have discovered this one to be perfectly acceptable for a jigsaw puzzle experience.

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
