This has been a crazy week. It is hard to believe what is going on in our country. I know I have not been myself since Wednesday. Watching the people storm the capitol was just awful. I felt like our country was truly divided and falling apart. I took a few days off from blogging because I just needed to care for me and my family and come back from all the emotions from the day. I have spent a lot of time praying and reflecting on my own life and what I want for our country as well as some crafts and puzzles. How are you doing?

In my last puzzle review I shared the puzzles on my to do shelf as well as my past puzzle reviews. Today I am sharing a fun puzzle that was on my to do shelf. It is called Thank You America Quilt Jigsaw Puzzle by Masako Wakayama. It is a 1,000 piece puzzle and is recommended for ages 14+.

I set this puzzle up after Hazel's  birthday party. Steve helped me some on it. We were able to complete it in a few days. I loved that it was a quilt for the picture. It did require looking at the fabric patterns as you put the puzzle together.

I focused on different parts of the puzzle to make it easier. I focused on the words and flags and then focused on the blue. I asked Steve to try the map of the USA, but he was tired and I got that part put together while he was sleeping. Oops! One of the things I did not like about this puzzle was there was no additional picture of the puzzle completed besides the ones on the box. Since the details of the fabric mattered the words on the large cover photo blocked the small details and it made those parts hard. You can see it in this photo of the box.

Where they have the title and then "Stitched Puzzles" blocks the fabrics behind it since they used banners. Besides that though I loved working on this puzzle. I have done other quilt puzzles and they were harder because they were vary similar parts. This one was easier due to the different parts of the actual quilt and the different fabrics.

Like I said it took Steve and I a few days (3-4). We enjoyed working on it and enjoyed the challenge. I hope you will check it out!
