    Must admit I had never heard of this expression before with regard quilting.

    I have had my laugh today over this.

    WHO would have thought this word would come into the quilting lingo where perfect points are to be honored !!! ???

    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?????
    I think I'd say it was a badly matched corner. Like the other night at our quilting group. I saw two quilts - show n tell. One was perfectly matched while the other one was hard on the eyes because of BADLY matched corners. It just didn't FLOW.

    OMG, that is hilarious. When my husb. & I used to travel to places like Las Vegas or Hawaii, we'd stand out on the balcony of our rm. & watch the girls work the streets. Sad but funny, too.

    I sure hope somebody can find out what a hoochy corner is.

    HMMM, I like those "hootchy stars." Anyone know of a pattern or directions?

    Rose I think that is "do the Hokey Pokey " and turn yourself around, but I like your definition better. Quilting Grannie I'm glad you found out from Google that this is a 'Hoochy Corner, I guess this is the 'Corner' where quilters display their 'beautiful wares' quilts that is lol. I love it this is a riot. Sorry Sue we aren't making fun of you but I don't think anyone really knows what it means, or at least I don't. Websters, just refers to it as booze. By the way I don't drink, and I don't think anyone else has tonight, but I love this. Maybe I should start a new quilt with mismatched points, corners etc. and name it a 'Hoochy Corner" this just might the a good seller, or might make up a pattern or book and sell it. Just a thought. If anyone else comes up with this I want copy rights and royalties from the sales. Maybe that's what a 'Crazy Quilt really is a Hoochy Corner Quilt. Just a crazy thought. This is a riot I needed this laugh today and just before betime too, I'll bet some of us will be dreaming of 'Hoochy Corners' tonight, hope no one talks in their sleep, DH's will think we are really crazy.

    The replies to my question are hilarious!!! The term hoochy corner is in the new QUILT magazine and refers to the quilt on the front cover.

    LOVE THIS WEBSITE..............
