I have a book full of fabric manipulation techniques that I've been too scared to try, but I think an accent piece like this might be doable...

Block 1: twisted pleats – Textured 4-patch quilt

This technique looks confusing, but is not difficult to sew. These alternating pleats are just created by marking pleats at the top, and the bottom. The pleats at the bottom should be marked directly in between the marked top pleats. When you sew the pleats, it looks like the fabric is folded in on itself and intertwined together.

Kind of like pinning fabric to a dress form for a layered dress, but apply that technique to quilt design!
