    Fussy cut is to cut a particular design element out of the fabric so it is centered in a square. For example, cutting a dancing Cinderella out of a larger Disney print fabric.

    Hoochy corners? Beats me, but if it's a quilting term someone will know.

    Ditto. Where did you hear or read the term? It may be easier to understand when the context of the term is known.

    Could it be a badly matched corner?????

    LOL...the only time I have ever heard the phrase "hoochy corner" was in reference to certain locations where ladies of the evening strut their stuff!

    I'd like to know what it means also! I've never heard of hoochy corner before, I even called my DM(she's been a quilter for as long as I can remember) and she didn't have a clue either!
