Step 3, follow instructions as they are.
Step 4, join the rows, the block will measure 4" x 4" from raw edge to raw edge.

Step 5, the margin at the bottom of the letter will be 1/2" from the raw edge. Once the background is attached to the block, the bottom of the "G" will be at 1/4" from the seam.

Then, step 6, all sashing are cut to 1" wide (finished size will be 1/2").
Cut 1 strip 1" x 8 1/2", and 1 strip 1" x 6 1/2".

Join panel F and panel G with the 6 1/2" strip.
Join panel A to the top of F+G with the 8 1/2" strip.
The finished Month 1 measures 8 1/2" x 12".

Will post in Show & Tell once I decide on the thread...

GRANDMA's CHOICE block
Cutting instructions:
(#22) 8 squares 2" x 2"
(#23) 8 squares 2" x 2"
(#4) 1square 1" x 1"
(#7) 4 rectangles 1" x 2"
Background (#22) 1 rectangle 3" x 4"
(#10) 1rectangle 2" x 2 3/4" for appliqué

Step 1, unit will measure 4" x 1".

Step 2, make HST units and trim them to 1 1/2".

I prefer to make larger pinwheel and trim them to the correct size.
Follow remaining instructions in step 2 to make the pinwheel. However, instead of pressing the last seam open, I press toward the dark and "undo" the stitches in the middle, to make a "mini-pinwheel" appear:

Then cut the pinwheel to 2" square, aligning the 1" mark to the center of the pinwheel:

Next step, next post...

Step 14, sew the background fabric - strip 1" x 4 1/2" on top and bottom. Press seam as mentioned in the instructions. Then, sew the 1" x 5 1/2" strip to the right side, and the 4" X 5 1/2" rectangle to the left.

Step 15, align the bottom of the letter as per instructions, but at 3" to the left of the seam:
