This is a scan of the block back. I had white thread on the top and burgundy thread on the bobbin to test the tension on my new sewing machine. Normally I would sew with a medium gray thread.

Notice how the seams of each row are pressed in opposite directions. This makes it easier to match up the seams, as they are nestled together and the bulk of the seam allowance is not on one side of the seam.
