Default Looking for folded potholder pattern

I received a lovely potholder last fall that is folded, then an X is sewn in the center to hold it all together. Before I dis-assemble it to figure out how it was made (want to do some Christmas ones), I thought I'd ask here first. I don't know if these pictures will do it justice, but there are four sections, each folded, then held together just in the center. Help?

I believe I have seen that technique in a coaster? There is tutorial someplace on the net. Basically the top woven part is actually 4 rectangles of fabric (made by folding fabric squares in half) and then layered like you would a cardboard box top. That is sewn onto the right side of the backing with the batting on the bottom and the whole thing is them turned right side out through the folded top. Maybe one one else can remember where the tutorial was? Well.......while I was typing this Auntpiggylpn found it, Yeah!

I've made those. They really are easy, and since there are so many layers of fabric they are very thick.

The video I saw sure makes it easy. Will do a few of those for a couple church craft sales I need to donate to. Actually, pretty much the same as the "5 piece tissue holder", just not a many layers and different proportions. Don't see why it couldn't be a mug rug, either.
