    I do 2 1/4 inch. But it really depends on how thick my batting is.

    I've always cut it 2", and it worked really well for me.

    But I recently started using Sharon Schamber's method, and on the last quilt that was just a tad too tight to work (I had cut the binding months before I saw the method). I made it work, but it wasn't fun. ;-)

    So now I'm going to start cutting it 2 1/4" wide on future quilts.
