Quilted Tote Bag: Buzz and Flutter

I found a Moda Bake Shop pattern designed by Glenn Dragone .
The pattern was easy to follow the pattern, up until the assembly of the quilt panels.
It may be me, and not the pattern.
I purchased 2.5 inch strips by Creative Cuts by Fabric Editions.

Instead of cutting 2.5 inch squares individually, I sewed two strips together and then cut.

Add 1 /4 inch borders

Sandwich batting between panel and lining for all 5 pieces: front, back, two sides, and bottom

Quilt all 5 pieces separately
Add border to top of front, back, and the two side panels

Make handles using a 21 inch by 4 inch piece of fabric

I added a bee and a butter fly button on the front and back panel (Buzz and Flutter)
I added flower buttons on the lining to cover the stitching on the handles.

Attach the bottom
Then the pattern gets confusing for me.
I muddled through the rest of the way and made my
own steps.
