Part of becoming a better woodworker is learning skills like how to make a roundover on odd edges.

For 1/8” or smaller round overs, I just put some 180 grit psa sandpaper across my fingers and sand along the edge. The pressure pushes the paper into my fingers creating a nice rounded profile.

For larger round overs (1/4”) I typically use my random orbit sander with some worn out 220 grit paper. Start on one face and roll the sander over the edge until it is sanding on the perpendicular pace. Be careful to keep the ROS even along the edge or you will get an uneven round over. Hit it with some 180 sandpaper like I mentioned above to even things out.
