About Me

My name is Eliot Anderberg, and my pronouns are they/them. I am a quilter and teacher of improvisational quilting currently living in Albuquerque, NM. In June of 2023, I started the Euphoria Quilt Project, a trans and queer group quilt project that aims to celebrate and archive gender-expansive joy. In the spirit of my great-great and great grandmothers, four of whom gathered frequently with their community to make quilts, I am interested in quiltmaking primarily as an art form that connects us (both in the present, and across space and time). In my own practice and in my teaching, I prioritize improvisational quilting techniques that emphasize ease and intuition, and explore what it means for joy to be an aesthetic and guiding principle.

My Talk

A fireside chat, with event host Bea Byrne, about the Euphoria Quilt Project, a trans and queer group quilt project I started in June 2023. I started the project with the aim of using quilting to create a communal archive of gender-expansive joy during a time of unprecedented persecution and scapegoating of trans and gender-variant people. The 11'x12' quilt is made of blocks sent in by over 150 people from over 40 states and 5 countries that answer the question, "What does your gender expansive joy look like?" It is as much a love letter to quilts as it is to trans and queer community, and in this talk I will delve into what quilting techniques block-makers were most drawn to, present a selection of blocks, and discuss what I have learned throughout the project and where we are headed next.
