Milk Can Makeover

I was asked to paint a design on the milk can pictured here along mc-slideshow-04with a small metal gas can that had the same faux stone finish.  The cans and outer surface were in good condition.  They do have a few dents and dings, which adds to their charm.

The only criteria I was given was that my client wanted to incorporate quilts on a clothesline in the design, as she is an avid quilter, who loves to applique and enjoys cross-stitch and embroidery.  I took to the Internet for my inspiration and I this is what I came up with.
