    Normally I don't like to press seams open, but I would on this block.

    well first lets get our terminology straight, we dont iron- thats what gals used to do, we press,
    we lift the iron up, and not drag it across our projects. DO NOT press seams open, you are more likely to end up
    with a hole, on your spiderweb, press the first set to the left(or right) then press the next set opposite, so the seams "nest". good luck
