I picked up an UFO from last year.  I was having problems with my tension and got mad at the quilt and put it up.  For a whole year!  School started and I did not have any time to sew.
I had to trace the Route 66 shield onto the 8 inch blocks for quilting.

 My husband has been picking up patches from Route 66, I decided to sew them onto his quilt.  The only ones that state actual places along Route 66 is the one from Cuba, MO (we went there last weekend for our anniversary) and the one from Springfield, MO (we live an hour from there). 
Oreo was helping me sew the patches on and making a mess of my thread.  Silly cat.
 The cats like to sleep in my rocking chair in my sewing room while I am in there sewing.
 The binding is on, I just need to finish the patches and quilting the big blocks.  I should be done by this weekend since I have already quilted in the ditch around all blocks and quilted the border.  I am quilting it on my Singer 16 industrial treadle.
Wish me luck!
