    Looks like real quilting to me. Quilters are just crafty people with a preference for fabric. You are officially one of us!

    they look great and thats real quilting.

    every quilt doesn't have to be all complicated piecing and quilting motifs for you to be a quilter.

    Let's see what makes a quilter? Someone who put fabric together, sandwiches it, sews it to make a beautiful quilt. That is whether it is a panel or fabric cut up. I think you are a quilter and you have done a wonderful with these quilts.

    They appear to be quilted to me. You are far ahead of me. I can only do in the ditch.

    Uh, duh, what is a real quilter???? You are, of course, a person who has an affinity for a needle and some fabric. You appear to have gone the extra mile and designed expressly for your recipients. You are a quilter!!!

    Cute quilts, I don't understand why you wouldn't call yourself a quilter. Of course you are!
