Default just finished this for grandniece for Christmas (and late graduation)

My grandniece is a freshman at Wichita State University and is pole vaulting for them. Since the pandemic disrupted graduations, and she didn't want to "give up" any t-shirts I never made her a t-shirt quilt. So my sis sent me this picture and I had it blown up at the local print shop and then did raw edge fusible. She has decorated her dorm room with sunflowers and I had this panel that I really wasn't doing anything with so....

That is gorgeous! What a lucky young woman! I love how dynamic the quilting is around the vaulting figure! It makes me think of the air rushing past her as she vaults!
