I typically use a wider than average binding, I prefer a twin and larger quilt to be cut at 3" and I have gone larger than that. I make a standard bias tube, then do the french fold technique with mitered corners.

I love the way striped fabric marches around the border when cut on bias and do that often.

edit:

Here's a Fons & Porter link showing the steps. You can make the binding however wide you want. Standard is 2.5 I think, that allows for a 1/2" finish.
