Links or pictures would really be helpful
Another possibility (though I do think velcro would be most practical) might be to attach some luff tape type material to the cushions and mount appropriate tracks for them to slide into.

Not exactly what I had in mind, but perhaps close enough to get the idea:

Talk to your sailmaker about the hardware that might work.
