Re: Quarter round - Match to the floor or the baseboard?
If the floor is uneven, the baseboard will not conform leaving a gap at the low spots. The quarter-round is more flexible and therefore will be able to hide the gap under the baseboard. If you didn't want quarter-round, you'd have to scribe the baseboard to match the uneven floor.

Reason: Edit: changed the word 'cope' to 'scribe'
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
