Woven Tumbling Blocks?

These wonderful 'Tumbling Blocks" table runners are actually tubes of fabric, pressed flat and woven to create the tumbling block pattern, then the border (which is sewn on the front ,at the same time as the one on the back) is sewn all the way around, add a binding and they are done! The inside seams on the borders are all that holds the woven tubes in place. This was taught at a class in a LQS in CT, but the woman teaching it said she learned it from a woman in a LQS in PA, while visiting her mom.
