  • FIRST TO COMPLETE IN FLORIDA AFTER MIXING ALL 24,000 PIECES BEFORE COMMENCING.
March 2009

Assembled between May 2008 and March 2009.

FIRST TO COMPLETE IN FLORIDA AFTER MIXING ALL 24,000 PIECES BEFORE COMMENCING.

I mixed all pieces together and worked solo.

I did the entire puzzle on 18" x 24" poster boards. When I was working on a section I would bring those boards onto the table in front of me, then put them back intoFIRST TO COMPLETE IN FLORIDA AFTER MIXING ALL 24,000 PIECES BEFORE COMMENCING. storage. I spent a lot of time sorting the pieces into many different boxes, and I was constantly re-sorting pieces. The best advice I can give to anyone attempting a big puzzle is to do a good job sorting the pieces.

I began work on many different sections before completing any of them. I can't say in what order I did the puzzle because I did it all at once. I've done two 18,000 piece puzzles, Tropical Impressions and St Columba Altarpiece Triptych. Life was the easiest of the 3 because of the bright colors, fine detail, and variety of pictures. This puzzle was time consuming because it was so big but it was not difficult.

I glued the completed puzzle and hung it on the wall with pushpins. Because I don't have a 14 foot wall I glued it in 2 pieces and wrapped them around a corner.
