Granny squares for a triangular cushion !!!!

These little fellas are with me since a long time (do you remember them?) and I decided to play with them...

....and I decided to sew a cushion from them !!! Luckily I have a little experience with cushions ( have a look at my @home made tab and just scroll down to find the images and the links to the posts!), but I wanted a different one even if made with granny squares. So I laid some squares on the floor to understand the pattern to form a triangle...

When I was sure about it, I chose some green yarn to join the squares into stripes, using single crochet stitches (I love the ridge that they create!) only in the back loops of each stitch...

The lines perpendicular to the green ones, instead, were crocheted with hot pink ...

Just to check if I did right....

So, I kept the fabric folded in half and I started to crochet a simple border (again a SC one, but not only in the back of the loops) using some orange....

After completing the first side of the cushion, I put inside a neutral pillow to give the right softness to my cushion and then I crocheted even the other side and.....HERE IT IS :

.....still tempted to add some pompoms/tassels/fringes......!!!!! ;oD
