because it is pieced i.e. sewn together with seams,
but this, which was made as a quick trial for an Textile Art piece, is a collage
because it fits this definition of collage:
"Collage is a piece of art made by sticking various different materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric on to a backing".
Your definition of a collage may be different but I am going with this one for now.

Of course then I had to have some fun with photo-editing
What do I do with these photo-edited images which do not yet exist in Real-Life?
This time I made them into covers for little note-books.
The spines are stitched with embroidery thread.
Hand-made note-books make fabulous little presents, especially at this time of the year.
Who doesn't love a little notebook?
