This Winter Patchwork Jigsaw Puzzle does have a lot of darkness but don't be fooled by it. I found this one to be perfectly doable. The idea here is to look for the little details that can be assembled first and placed in their section, then work the boarders according to the fine detailed squares.

Winter Patchwork Jigsaw 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. 

To assist assembling this puzzle border I laid out all the flat edge pieces according to the shapes.

There is a lot of color/patterns along the border so it was a matter of matching the shapes into position by testing one by one - I find it assembles much faster that way.

Below is the finished border and you can easily see the many combination of patterns with a solid light-white edge.

You can see in the images below, I started with the most distinguished large text among the different areas of the images. Then I focused on large areas of solid colors. Slowly the 6 areas started to take form before I tackled the center/borders between the 6 areas. 

Winter Patchwork Jigsaw Puzzle Comments...

I took several close up photos to share the details which are not very visible on the large image. There is a lot of darkness in this image but I really enjoyed assembling it. It did take longer than my usual time to do a 1000 piece puzzle but well worth it in the end!

This 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle is designed by Helz Cuppleditch and measures 20" x 27". This quilt-patterned puzzle features various iconic winter icons. Helz licences her work for various products throughout the world including papercraft, fabrics, greetings cards, stationery, jigsaws, houseware, cross stitch and many more. It's worth taking a look. 

When this puzzle is assembled it is quite colourful and very impressive. I can highly recommended it! It is available to buy at Bits and Pieces but you should shop around for the best shipping prices. 

I have also had the pleasure of assembling the Horse Show which is also by Bits and Pieces.
