Scan settings to create fabric swatches for background applique?

What is the best technique on creating fabric swatches to use in Wilcom as applique background fabrics?

In the past, I was told the fabrics swatch needs to be 92 dpi to add to the fabric folder in Wilcom.

The problem I have encountered is that with prints, when the fabric is scanned at 100%, then resized to 92 dpi (or directly scanned as a cropped 92 dpi square), when imported into the design, it is tiled into tiny/small print, such as this (and doesn't look realistic):


If I scan it at 100%, the image will appear nice (or at least more to scale and/or realistic) like so:


While the visual output is better, it really slows Wilcom down when saving, opening, exporting multi decorator files, etc., and increases file size from 92KB to 8500 KB.

What suggestions do you have to create realistic applique fabrics in the background?

Thanks in advance :)
