Trimming out quarter round replacement window


I just recently replaced some windows and 2 of them are quarter round, 30" high, 30" wide. I've trimmed out the normal windows with masonite for the jambs and just the usual window casing, just not sure how to go about getting a quarter round to look the same or similar.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

you can order the trim from the window manufacture usually

or you can use flexible trim

Your also going to have to build jamb extentions.
With all the stuff going on at the very tops of the windows you may be stuck with sheetrock returns and no trim. The narrowest colonial moulding is 2-1/4 and it looks line there's no room for it at the peak.
2, layers of 1/4 sheetrock sprayed with water on the back side will flex enough to make the curve and they make sheetrock moulding with notches in it for making curves like that.

I agree, break out the mud and sheetrock. I might try osing half inch and cut grooves on the back for the curves.

That's how my windows were previously trimmed out, drywall all the way around for the jambs, except for the bottom. I have 2, 6' windows directly below these quarter rounds, would you think having 2 sets of windows finished differently so close together look okay? Do I have much choice?
Thanks.

A rock return would sure look better then having the top all cut up to clear whatever that is at the top.

Normally I'd say match the rest of the trim, but I agree with Joe.
