From the pattern description:

An irregular stripe pattern in soft shades partially cover the front panel of this cushion cover. This design is all about balance - the harmonious combination of colours and the measured spaces within which the striped and solid-coloured blocks are placed. The button fastening across the back panel has been placed so that it sits in line with the start of the stripe pattern on the front panel.
