The idea to make these two cushion covers came from Saija when looking at her blogpost. Instead of the blue hues and white background, I decided to go for fabrics from my Kaffe Fasset Collective stash. For the background I have used Kona Solid in eggshell. Here the cushion covers from the front :

Piecing details, the pinned sandwich before quilting. I always add backing to my cushion covers sandwich : Bomull from IKEA. The orange backside has rectangles cut 2,5″ x 3″.
I have pieced the yellow back with rectangles cut 2,5″ x 4,5″ and squares cut 2,5″ x 2,5″. See quilting details on the photos below.
For the half-square triangles I have cut 24 squares 4″ x 4″ – from the Kona Solid in eggshell and 24 pieces 4″ x 4″ from my Kaffe Fassett Collective stash. For the golden accent triangles I have cut squares 2″ x 2″.
I have inserted a zipper closure to both cushion covers. Quilted with my favourite walking foot in straight lines folowing the design :
