FMQ swatches

When I was quilting my Dottie quilt last week, I was reminded how useful it can be to spend a few minutes with a swatch to get warmed up. 
It can be very useful to plan ahead and keep a stack of small six inch quilt sandwiches near the sewing machine for when you want to try something out. They also came in handy when I was experimenting with some of the embroidery stitches on it.  
I really like the wood grain one, and the pebbles.  You can do pebbles as ovals for a whole different look!
