Pink and Black Box Bag

I got the tutorial off of this pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/251005379203127065/
The directions call for two 7" x 10" rectangles for the exterior fabric, and two of a coordinating fabric for the lining, along with matching interfacing. To make a quilted version, I used 10 swatches cutting out 2 blocks from each. I measured and cut out a 2"x 7" rectangle on a piece of  paper to create a template for my quilting blocks. 
Note: if you use this method, be sure to leave a seam allowance around the block. Penciling the template on the back of the fabric gives you a precise line to sew along. After joining all the pieces together cut off the excess on the outer edges along the pencil lines to give you the required 7" x "10" rectangles.
The interfacing in my version was replaced with a layer of batting quilted to the trimmed exterior piece.






The bag is turned inside out in these photos for a better look at the lining.
