Born to Go Run

by

Mark Tiedeman of Quilter's Paradise


Quilt runs, aka shop hops, play an important role in quilters' lives and the social fabric of the quilting world. They're a chance for quilters to get out of the house, spend quality time with friends and/or family members, and see what's new in the quilt shops in a given geographic area. Quilt runs offer the opportunity for a quilter to let "their hair down", get a little crazy, and explore their wild side. With the anticipation of a sense of adventure, sunny skies, and rockin' and rollin' down the highway, what better song to get the juices flowing and the heart beating faster than the 1968 classic Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf? With the guitars blaring, keyboards jamming and drums pounding, sing these words to that classic tune and enjoy the run!!

  Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for some new stuff
And whatever comes our way
Yeah cruisin' to make it happen
Take fabric in a love embrace
See all that there is and let
Smiles explode on your face

I like play and prizes
Shops packed full of wonder
Racin' to the next shop
And accumulating plunder
Yeah cruisin' to make it happen
Take fabric in a love embrace
See all that there is and let
Smiles explode on your face

Like a true quilter's chum
We were born, born to go run
We will drive 'til done
Never so much fun

Born to go run
Born to go run
