    If you could add a picture that is at a distance also, would be great for comparison.

      Thanks for the feedback Helen!

      We try to make our swatches big enough to see multiple repeats of a pattern and get a good idea of what it will look like on a decent sized piece of fabric. All of our swatches are at least 8 inches wide by 5 inches tall. We really don’t have the time to make them bigger since adding an inch in either direction adds about 20 minutes at least.
