Why did Hashem not instruct them to bring the materials to Moshe first (in keeping with all the commands until now)?

1.

Ramban: Now that they were about to begin working on the Mishkan and on the Begadim, Hashem placed complete trust in the workers, 1 as regards counting what had been collected. They counted the donations and they reported to Moshe. And so it was with regard to all the work connected with the construction of the Mishkan, where, apart from the first day, when they took all the materials from before Moshe, 2 they were under no obligation to report to him on the progress of their work.
