I just draw out a template on thick cardboard or foam. Then I place my work on it, pin it in place, spray it with water to get it damp, and let it airdry. Easy.
Can we do more than one motif at a time with this method (or any of the methods, for that matter!)? I would love to not have each block available for my monsters to destroy for several hours at-a-time while they dry. If I can't find another way, I may end up pinning ALL of my motifs (CAL and KAL) to my mattress, running the sheet through the rinse cycle, and laying it on top of them.... and hopefully they will all be blocked and ready to remove by the time DH comes home and wants to go to bed!
