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. 

I took my time with the 2nd round of sorting making sure I placed the colors in groups as much as possible as I knew that would be beneficial for the assembly process.

I was totally surprised when the border took less than 10 minutes to assemble and it also shared the first impressions of the 'soft-click'. It is not often I get to experience the 'soft-click' but it sure is delightful when I do. 

Then I knew doing the dark colors to the light colors would likely be the plan for this image and once I got started it was extremely difficult to stop. I do have great lighting at my workstation and the pieces are non-glare with a coating that feel like a soft wax on the facing-up pieces. The quality of the pieces are good and sturdy and also fit nice and 'taut' which allows for sections to be moved around the board easily. 

So I ended up working the puzzle image from dark red at the top -all the way across and then carried on with the other colors that were in the order on the box. I was super amazed at how quickly this puzzle went together and broke my own record for my fastest timing for a 1000 piece puzzle. That said, this puzzle type is perfect for puzzlers who are unsure of attempting a 1000 piece puzzle as it has all the makings of a perfect puzzle experience and the image is inspiring enough to be enjoyed while assembling and admiring it when completed.

The following are some of the close up images displaying the quality cut of the pieces and the style of the ribbon/grid type cut. I am really impressed with the 'soft-click' connections, the perfect tightness in the cutting and the very pretty rainbow type colors fading into lightness.

The Cloudberries Jigsaw Puzzle Company is located in the UK. It's a family run small business making its mark in the jigsaw puzzle market. This Company has the same quality, cut and images as the well known companies and ranks right up there for a perfect puzzle experience. I highly recommend you try a Cloudberries puzzle as soon as you get the opportunity.

I was even delighted to see their cute little extra postcard in the box, in a poem format to invite you to contact them - every little bit of extras counts and that really personalizes it. The connections I have had with them has been very responsive and quite friendly too! They even have a gift card option and their puzzle can be purchased on Amazon.com. I am told they will become available on Amazon.ca and other Canadian location soon too!
