I have always loved stripes, but checks I have not. I think it came from High School Home Education class and we had to make some sort of clothing. I picked a sundress and the fabric was a blue and white check. It was hideous and for the simple fact that I screwed up the straps, it never hung quite right when I wore it (if I wore it more than once). So checked fabric makes me think of the whole bad experience until when I saw these pillows in Ballard Design.
I think it is the combination of the burlap and the check that has drawn me in, plus I think I like the green the best. I might have to put this on the to do list,so be sure to come back and check them out!
