    For my current quilt I am using 3 1/2" simply for aesthetics purposes and fold over to make it double. I usually just do 2 1/4" and sew on with 1/4" seam.

    2 1/2 inches so I can double it. It makes it last longer.

    I cut it 2-3/4 inches and use a 3/8 inch seam allowance. It's a very comfortable size to work with.

    was cutting them 2 1/4 but am starting to make quilt-as-you-go strip quilts and find if I use 2 1/2 binding I can better use the leftovers in the strip quilts

    Forgive me for being stupid but I am a newbie. What do you make your binding out of? The fabric you r using or a color fabric that matches? I thought u had to buy binding.

    You can buy binding but it gets costly and it is difficult to match your quilt so you cut the fabric of choice into strips, mine being
    2 1/2" wide and join them together, (I do a miter join but you don't have to do that) Fold the long fabric strip in half and press then sew the raw edge to your quilt top, fold to the back and whip stitch it. I think most of us quilters make our own, and no question is a stupid question, we all have asked them at one time or another, how else would we learn?

    1-3/4" for a flat quilt, or 2-1/4" for fluffier. I like them thin and tight.
