I just read this one not that long ago!  Contemporary but a few years old.

She, Heather??, had a baby out of wedlock with long time boyfriend, who is an attorney.  He doesn't believe in marriage because his parents divorced when he was young although they're back together again now.  He comes from a big family.

Baby's name is Young Mick after attorney's father.  Attorney's mother runs an art gallery.  Heather opens a quilting store in the same town where attorney's parents live, leaving attorney behind.  I think it was somewhere along the Chesapeake. 

I know they get together in the end but I don't remember what changes his mind.   The book was a fair read but the fact that I can't remember the ending is driving me crazy so I'm going to have to check out of library to figure it out!

Any help is appreciated.

That sounds like a Sherryl Woods book. She has a series that is on the Chesapeake, but I don't read her much anymore so I'm not 100% sure.  Look at her books in the past 2-3 years and I 

think it may be one of those.

Yes, it's a Sherryl Woods book....Driftwood Cottage (Chesapeake Shores #5).

From GR:

Single mom Heather Donovan's dreams of home and family are tantalizingly within reach when she settles in Chesapeake Shores. The welcoming arms of the boisterous, loving O'Brien clan embrace her and her son. But accepting their support seems to further alienate her son's father, Connor O'Brien. His parents' divorce and his career as a high-powered divorce attorney have left him jaded about marriage.Then everything changes. Will the possibility of a future without Heather make Connor look at love and his career differently? Heather's just about given up on her old dreams--of love, of family and especially of Driftwood Cottage, the home she secretly wishes were hers. It's going to take a lot of persuasion--and some help from the O'Brien family--to make Heather believe that some dreams are worth fighting for.

Thank you, Divina!  That's it.  Now I can check out and reread the ending.
