What is this??

This vine grew out of my compost pile this spring, it grew everywhere. It looked like cucumber or squash leaves at first, so I let it go, but it grew and grew and grew. It finally started showing flowers mid-august, and now it has these star-shapped "fruits"? on it that have quills all over. Just curious what it might be.

I think you've answered your own question correctly :) Don't let it set seed.

This was a complete nightmare to get rid of, and this year I have new plants popping up all over the place. No volunteers from now on!!
