    this is just so funny, I think I heard my dad say that a couple times when I was younger, he used the term for when he was in the navy and he was talking about all the lose ladies that would wait for the ships to come in. Penny

    Maybe hoochy corners are like cattywompus or askew or not laying flat.

    I just found the cutest pattern on allpeoplequilt.com for a "Spring Flowers Wall Hanging" that was inspired by Mary Lou Weidman's design "It's a Riot" and it features hoochy corners. The pattern directions explain how to use this technique. Check it out here:

    My guess on hoochey corners is when they are not squared. as in binding not mitered accurately or binding not mitred accurately.

    I checked the site out and now I know what 'hoochy corners' are. Not what I thought prior to checking the site.

    I just had to explain that to my husband the other day. There is a difference between cattywompus and kitty corner but not katty corner and kitty corner.

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

    Hoochy momma is a pattern book by Mary Lou Weidman. It is supposed to be a fun, easy way to make blocks, I have never tried it. Check out Mary Lou Weidman or Hoochy Momma quilts. I know this is an old post but you may still be curious.

    I live near Scotch Corner (UK) - I know it has nothing to do with the thread, but I thought I would "mess things up a little" Perhaps we should be known as Scootch Corner...

    Come on ladies....A hoochy corner is one that you had to "make" fit by hooching it...push, pull, hooch to make it fit. After all that a good press also helps. :0)
