    I use 2 1/2 to 3 inches. I always have binding to go over, so I like enough so I don't have to really pull.

    Same here. I think it adds a finishing touch and enhances the quilt.

    I mostly use 2 1/4 inch but it can depend on the batting. I always make a small sample to see what works , to leave enough but not too much when I do the stitch in the ditch.

    I cut my binding 2.5 inches and sew it on with a 3/8ths inch seam. I always hand stitch to the back because I like the way it looks.
