The backing is, also, Amanda Murphy Animals. I used the light green for the binding. I just quilted a grid of wavy lines. I learned a few new things in this quilt along, such as chain piecing and sewing curves. Plus, it was neat how the diamonds are created when the blocks came together. I like how the diamonds have a different fabric/color on each side.
I am enjoying having this quilt on my couch this year for Christmas.
