It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the square to be lightly stiffened. Soak and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the square working from the center out to the edges. Allow to dry completely before removing the pins.
