There are "blocking boards" available for purchase, but I don't think they are necessary. (But if I had money coming out the ears, I would likely try one anyway ) Depending on the size of the piece to be blocked, I usually just set some towels out on the bed or coffee table or ironing board or the floor and pin the piece there. It's important that you get rust proof pins so your pieces won't get rust stains.
