I love this pretty Quilted Kittens Puzzle because it has all the elements of a perfect puzzle experience. Kittens, quilts, pretty pastel colours,  500 large size pieces that all makes for a delightful 5 hour session.  And lets just throw in a couple of butterflies to sweeten the curiosity of the kittens.  Not exactly sure how the kitties got to the top of the clothesline but that's the creative part.  This quilt reminds of the quilts way back in the day and I can appreciate the work that goes into quilts. Overall, Cobble Hill Puzzle Company nailed this one to be a winner!

Quilted Kittens 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. 

As you can see in the image above right, I have taken a further step to layout the border pieces as I sort the first round. Then border went together fairly quickly.

I took the pieces with the kitties and butterflies and put them into the center of my board so I only had to lay out the pastel colours onto one foam board.

There is a nice BIG poster included with the Quilted Kittens Puzzle which is an added bonus!

First I started with the three kitties first which were quite simple. Next was the sky, butterflies and clothes pins were more simple areas. That left the patterns in the quilt left to do. These quilt patterns were also colour coordinated and pattern coordinated so that simplified that large section.

Quilted Kittens Puzzle Comments...

The matte finish is always nice on these Cobble Hill Company puzzles. I was totally delighted with everything about this puzzle including the cut. I highly recommend it but be prepared - the Quilted Kittens puzzle  is highly addictive. So once you start you will just want to keep going until it's completed.

I can easily give this one the highest compliments from a puzzler as you can see in the close up images below. The perfect puzzle experience.....not to mention the 'aah' factor - "aahhh look at those cute little kitties....."

 I also had the pleasure of assembling this Quilt Blocks puzzle by Cobble Hill  Puzzle Company.
