    apparently my answer is 7.

    But wait! There's more!!!

    1) It's a 2" seam!!!
    2) It's paper piecing!!!!!

    So? Does this take the cake or what?

    I'm going to go eat something now. I'm blaming it all on low blood sugar. Where is the chocolate???

    Wow, I'm impressed you still have paper to sew on. :mrgreen:

    I have a personal tolerance level of 4 times.
    After that, it gets tossed in the garbage - that'll show it - and I start a new one.

    Hope you found some chocolate.

    I generally go until the fabric is so worn I can't trust it to hold together and THEN, on the next seam, it is perfect. Ain't that the way>

    I won't sew anything more than 3 times. Either I leave it as part of the design element or replace the fabric. Resewing only weakens the fabric.

    You are far better than me. Don't know that I'd have the paper or fabric left to do more than 3-4. If I'm not pp'ing I don't think I could count!
