What is This Pattern Called?

I had a friend today asking what the name of this pattern is called.   It is definitely a hexagon shaped design, but is there a specific name for this particular design?  Anybody know?

Update!   Thank you to Vireya for identifying this pattern for us!  She shared:

Jinny Beyer's "Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns" calls it "Endless Chain", Alice Brooks, Detroit Free Press, Jun 5 1940. Also known as "Economical Chain", Laura Wheeler, Americana Designs Quilts, ca 1940.

  1. Wow, my Brackman's let me down! Ask Christina Cameli of A Few Scraps, since it has wedge shapes. And pretty quilt.
