Unread post Re: Has anyone seen...
Just to throw out a few more ideas:

Heat 'n' bond is about the best fabric bonding agent I have found and have used it to applique a variety of different designs:

It give really nice crisp lines and that piece was left to rattle about in my unfinished projects container for a couple of years and the edges did not fray.
I did wind up couching gold cord around all the designs for added textural interest. It would be possible to bond to a dark fabric then cut that into strips and bond to the lighter fabric.

It could also be possible to embroider or couch cord (by machine or hand) or to sew flat strips of fabric (bias tape or ribbon in suitable low sheen) as the pattern is quite geometric.

Jocata Nu's pattern was created by machine appliquing scraps of fabric with a darn brown zigzag stitch:

If you click "original" at the bottom of the page you'll see how there are different weaves and different directions of grain that show this :)
