Smile Stitch length for Stitch in the Ditch

Hi!
What stitch length do you use the most when SITD or doing any quilting with your walking foot?
Thank you!

It varies, I increase the stitch length on a sample sandwich until I like the look. The thicker the sandwich, the longer the stitch length. I like the stitches to look the same as my 2.5 default fabric regular sewing stitching.

I use a larger stitch for SID. I just like the way it looks. I use a 4. most of the time. Sometimes I use a 4.5.

When I SID, my stitches are is about 1/8" or 3/16". When piecing it's shorter...maybe 1/16".

I set mine at 2.5 also. For sewing a quilt I use 2.0.
