SAQA Auction Piece

I have participated in the SAQA online auction for the last two years, and have sent in a piece for this years' auction, which begins in September.  My piece is titled Autumn Splendor, is 12 x 12, and made up of commercial fabrics which are torn, and then stitched down.  In the upper right hand corner and lower left hand corner, I have cut 1/4 inch strips of each fabric and woven them together, fused them onto the piece and added small seed beads in the junctions. 
Here is a close-up of the woven area:
