1.5" quarter round to fill gap?

This is an awkward area to fill. The gap is about 1 inch so a 1.25 or 1.5" quarter round might work but the side on left connects to another door trim which is not flat and at the top, there's a trim that sits closer to the wall.
What's the best way to fit something in here and get it looking good, nail it in and then caulk the side?
And the top, do I have to trim the quarter round down to fit in somehow?

A pic from further back might be helpful. If at all possible I'd use drywall tape, even if you have to flat tape and butt up to the corner.

Too late now. Is there such a thing as a 1.25" quarter round? If not I'll have to butt 2 thin pieces of straight wood up against each other maybe?

I'd flat tape the drywall to hide the gap, sand and caulk when done.

As far as I know quarter round doesn't come any bigger than 3/4" You could use lattice [or whatever] and it may not stick out too bad once primed, caulked and painted.
