Spring Tulips by Marjolein Bastin – Ceaco – 300 pieces

To be perfectly honest, I don’t remember much about this assembly. It was about three months ago that I completed this puzzle, and the most I can remember is that it was enough of a challenge that it didn’t seem like a 300 piece count puzzle.

It was about average Ceaco quality, although I do find that their 300 piece puzzles tend to be a little better quality-wise than their larger piece counts.

I enjoy the artwork of Marjolein Bastin, she does nature very well. And her puzzles look like they’d be a snap to assemble, but usually are much more challenging than they look!

Review: Fall’s Bounty

Fall's Bounty

Fall’s Bounty was an entertaining puzzle with beautiful artwork by Marjolein Bastin. And I have to say it was one of the best quality Ceaco puzzles I’ve done. Shocked? I was too!

I’ve done Ceaco puzzles with very good quality and some that were awful, it’s always a guess whether or not you’ll be getting a good one. That’s why it’s normally a brand we only purchase from thrift stores. This puzzle though, and another from this series that I’m currently working on, are very good quality and I was quite impressed. The pieces are a good thickness, with a wonderful fit and beautiful reproduction.

The assembly went quickly, but the image had enough challenge to make it interesting at well; I enjoyed placing every piece. Marjolein Bastin’s beautiful nature artwork makes for great puzzling and is definitely recommended. ūüĎć
