Sienkiewicz is a quilter and an author. She teaches women how to quilt, specifically appliqué. She is responsible for the revival of the Baltimore Album style quilt, in which each quilting block is unique and brought together with others to create an album of sorts. She focuses on appliqué and even hired out for some of her non-appliqué quilting. Though her love for quilting descended from elderly relatives, she did not pass it on to her children. She hopes her legacy will live on through her grandchildren. She finds happiness in her profession as a quilter.
