Baby quilt made from precuts - finished product

If there is a greater feeling in this world than finishing a quilt, I would like to know what it is!  Fine, winning the lottery, graduating from college, all right I get the idea.  However, out of regular kind of experiences it is right up there.  I think no matter what the goal is, it...
