It looks to me it was just scraps of different colored fabrics put together to create a "new" fabric, then cut into the shape they wanted. 

Does anyone know what this is called?

It could be done like a crazy quilt or maybe they did make a 'new' fabric, though I don't know for sure how they did it or if it's a particular technique. Sorry, I was no help at all was I?! xD

It looks like a most wonderful combination of piecing and applique, in that the person made, essentially, two "tops" (one for each set of shades, a darker one and a lighter one) and then cut it out via a template, and appliqued it to a base. I could see that done so well with a bargello pattern as the applique fabric.
