A swatch refers to a sample piece of fabric that helps you choose fabrics for your project.  Any scrap of fabric will do.  (Notice the random cut green and lavender swatches.)  Fabric companies sometimes hand out sample swatches of a fabric line like the blue one shown in the photo.  I also like to use the fabric selvage as a swatch because it often contains a dot of each color in the fabric.
