I saw a new patch on Andy Thomas' blue flight suit in a picture posted on the Kennedy Space Center website.

The patch is similar in style to the Mach 25 patch, but has the number 100 in large text (like the 25), with a space station crossing the number (like the shuttle), and "Days" in smaller text (like "Mach").

Neato! This must have been made for the small (but growing) number of astronauts who have been in space for 100+ days.

This is the "100 Days in Space" patch, designed by Andy Thomas, as worn by him.

A fair portion of the recent ISS astronaut contingent has gotten them. Sunita Williams, Clay Anderson, Dan Tani and Peggy Whitson all have them (as well as Ken Bowersox and Don Pettit I believe along with others).

In Tani's case, I think somebody added it to his flight suit while he was still in orbit as I can recall the first images I saw of him wearing a blue flight suit when he got back had the patch on it (less then 24 hours after he returned home). Of course his flight wasn't originally supposed to last that long and it also is a hard earned badge considering his mom died while he was still in orbit.

Any chance that they'll produce a "200 Day" patch for guys like Michael Lopez-Alegria and possibly Greg Chamitoff?

I don't know about a '200 Days' patch, but Mark Kelly presented Garrett Reisman an "Almost 100 Days" patch at the STS-124 and Expedition 17 presentation held this past Thursday in Houston.

Reisman logged 95 days and 9 hours during his first mission.

On closer inspection, the patch was the same but with a card attached above it that read "Almost".

All times are CT (US)
