Acorn Squash Quilt

While grocery shopping one fall weekend, I spied a bin of acorn squash in the produce department, and found myself mesmerized by the luscious rich dark greens with tinges of orange. I was flooded with memories of my mom, and her fondness for acorn squash in the fall. She would take the small, dark green orb and cut it in half to reveal golden orange inside, then place both halves cut side down on a cookie sheet and bake them in the oven. Mom’s been gone for a few years now, but I just love how she keeps showing up in my life and in my heart and in my quilts – and did you know that pumpkins are squash, too?
