    Thank you ! I would love to draw one but I don't think I could. I think I will try the paper piecing - I have never done it but I will try :)

    Debbie Mumm had a book out a few years back that had an acorn applique. you might just google acorn quilt pattern and see what you get.

    Or you can google acorn, print out a photo of one and then trace around it with a light table or by putting it on a window. That way you can get the exact shape or type and as big or small as you want. No drawing skills needed, just the ability to trace. That is, if you are wanting to do applique.

    Here's a simple acorn outline which would be good for applique. The bottom and stem are done in a medium brown and the cap is dark brown. I found this by googling "acorn" using IMAGES instead of WEB from the top bar on the google page.

    Good luck with whichever one you try.
