Ravensburger 32,000 piece puzzle – Section B

After finishing sections E and A, I next moved onto section B. I began this section on Saturday, 11 February 2012 and finished on Tuesday, 21 February 2012. So this section took 10 calendar days to complete, while the previous two sections section took 3 weeks each. I did not use the previous completed puzzle as a template until I got up to the white.

The initial sorting into color groups took 4 or 5 hours. I finished the initial sort of pieces into Ziplock bags by about noon on the 12nd of Feb.

I started with Yellow for this puzzle. I seem to pick the color which has the fewest pieces to begin with because it gives me a boost of confidence. I find it helpful to power me through the process of completing the puzzle. Somehow after getting a few hundred pieces together, assembling the 4,000 pieces remaining seems more possible.

I finished sorting the yellow pieces in about 20 minutes and completed assembling yellow the next day.

Next I moved onto Pink. I finsihed half of pink a few hours later.

Next I moved onto Red. I had to actually do my real job during the week (unfortunately earning a living took precedence over completing the puzzle), so I did not complete red until Friday evening on 17 Feb.

I completed Green the next day.

After completing yellow, pink, red and green, I moved onto Blue. Last would be Orange, which had the greatest number of pieces for this section. I completed assembly of blue two days later.

After Blue, I moved onto Orange. It took about 12 hours to sort and complete the orange. After completing Orange, all of the panels were assembled, leaving only the white to connect the panels into a puzzle.
