I use single. Double thread seems too bulky to me. I've never had a problem with it not holding.

I use a single thread and hide a knot in the binding once in awhile (figuring if the thread ever breaks, there will only be 6 inches or so of mending to do).

this is how I do it as well but I have used silk thread on smaller peices, like a table topper. For bedsize quilts I use a regular thread that matches the binding color.

Single, and make small stitches, plus short lengths to make knots along the way so if it comes out (none have so far) it would only be one piece.
