Well since nobody has thrown out any ideas I'll start off with a couple. First off that's a real nice job you did on the framing Joe. Looks great! Is the top header flush with the two outer vertical posts? In the first picture it looks set back 3/8 or 1/2 inch on the left side. That would make making corner blocks difficult but not impossible. Scribe the outer edges where the stucco pilasters flare out with a compass and cut rosette corner blocks with a saber saw or even a coping saw. Then , how about tacking up some 3/4" primed and painted quarter round along the top against the soffit and down both verticals. A strip of shoe molding along the bottom, run a bead of white latex caulk to fill in any remaining gaps and call it a day! Just a thought.
On second thought, I keep looking at that second photo and the vertical gaps aren't that bad. I might be tempted to just run a nice bead of caulk up each side, put some painted quarter round along the top edge, and just enjoy my porch in bug-less harmony. That'd certainly be the quick and inexpensive way.
