It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece.  Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened.  Soak the doily 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 doily working from the center out to the edges.  Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.
