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. 

During the first round of sorting I laid out all the edge pieces to get that step ready for assembling the border as you can see in the photo to the right.

The border was not difficult to complete as this is a collage type image so following the colors on the box and the random cut pieces the border went together easy enough.

You can see in the image to the left there is a nice size poster included with the puzzle which helps for the area under the Cobble Hill puzzle logo.

I figured the red and white text "Greetings From Canada" and the rusty-colored Maple Leaf along with the red and white Canada flag would be the best place to start which would build on the 'CANADA' text. I could see the Provinces text might be tricky however it turns out the upper left corner shown in the image below to the left was the most difficult part of the puzzle and I completed that first - the rest of the puzzle went together much easier. 

So once the Greetings From Canada and CANADA text was completed it kinda built into the bluish Northwest Territories which built into the surrounding Provinces which expanded that process across the entire puzzle.

For each of the provinces I looked for the correct text and colors until a good portion of all the Province text was asembled as shown in the image below to the right. Then to finish off from that point was quite easy and quick.

Comments

I love the way this one looks when completed. It's clean, organized and colorful with the trickiest area in the upper left corner but not difficult enough to spoil the experience.

The following images share nice closeups to see the random cut pieces which are non-glared and fit great. Also each Province image represents the Province's logo for what is it known for. One thing I did note is that Manitoba vehicle plates state 'Friendly Manitoba'  however I see they opted out for the Buffalo - Glorious and Free which has more impact!
