    I read this while googling!

    "Anyway, in the quilting world, thanks to Mary Lou's book and workshops, to hoochy a block is to deliberately misalign the corners of the fabrics you're piecing, which renders measuring pretty much unnecessary and careful sewing a thing of the past."

    LOL, hoochy corner! Since the lines don't match maybe is should be called scootchy corner!! Better than mixing it up with the "ladies of the evening". Even those girls want their seams to match.

    I thought as much, 'hooch' in my book is Whisky, so no wonder, after a few shots, who would care about matching anything up!
    Must admit I had never heard of this expression before with regard quilting.

    I agree - Hooch is booze. And it could be kept in the corner, under those UFO's. No one but a quilter would think to look there.

    see the reply or quote reply buttons - in the yellow area at the bottom of the last response. Just use that to quote, or to post photos.

    In the white area under the reply, there is a quick reply. Probably that is what you are using.
