Jungle Babies Interactive Baby Quilt

Today was an exciting day.  I finally finished the Jungle Babies Quilt that I started over a month ago.  I think my niece will be happy.  Here it is:                     (See bottom of this post for zucchini casserole recipe!)
This is the insteractive back.  There are little things that a baby would like such as little loops for toys.

Here's the only part I'm not sure of, but at this point it's staying.  It's a monkey tail.

Gotta love a link-a-do holder. 
 Here's an interesting giraffe tail.
 The front is made from panels I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.  It was supposed to be a book.  You can read the front of the quilt like a book.

All ready to go to Saturday's baby shower.  Can't wait to see it with Camden on it!
