1) How wide do you usually make yours? First time I did the standard (or so I read) 2.5" wide, major fail, as it was too short. Second time I did 3" and was almost wide enough but still too short. So my third attempt I did 3.5". I hope it works!
2) Do you always press your binding before attaching to the quilt? I hate, let me rephrase that, HATE ironing. lol So do you press the binding in half then sew it onto your quilt or do you skip the ironing?
I have my binding ready to be ironed (or not) and I am so tempted not to press it but don't want to make a big mistake by not. So it is necessary to press before attaching?
