We’re nearing the end! With this installment, there are only THREE more months to come in Paper Piecing Vintage!
Today, I share a very traditional design, Beggar’s Block. If you’ve ever pieced this block before, you will find the paper pieced version goes together a bit differently, and I hope, easy peasy to get all those points!
As with all the blocks from PPV, Beggar’s Block is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.

Save some time by following these bonus directions:
- For both sizes, save time by cutting strips of fabric 1/2″ to 3/4″ wider than the template. You can then sub-cut pieces a little bit longer. For example: for the 12″ block, cut 2″ strips, sub-cut into 2″ x 5″.
- Triangles can be sub cut from squares. For example: for the 12″ block, cut 16 – 2 3/4″ squares, sub-cut into half-square triangles (32 sqt).
- Save time by chain piecing!
- When piecing final pattern, line up the center square to get perfect points.
- Have fun!
