I have always use single thread and it has always worked fine.

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).

I've always used single thread.

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.

I also love to bind quilts. I have always used a single thread.

Single for me too.

Single thread and very strong and fine, Bottom Line by Superior Threads.

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.

Double....but I may try single next time.
