Are the characters "\n" literally there, or did you use them to indicate the presence of line feeds?

echo $(echo $(<list.txt)) | sed 's/\(^.\)/"\1/;s/ /", "/g;s/$/"/'

where list.txt is the file containing the list.

If you have the list in a variable $LIST just do

echo $(echo $LIST) | sed 's/\(^.\)/"\1/;s/ /", "/g;s/$/"/'

Note: I've put spaces after the commas. Your example is not quite clear in that aspect.

This is without spaces:

echo $(echo $(<list.txt)) | sed 's/\(^.\)/"\1/;s/ /","/g;s/$/"/'

echo $(echo $LIST) | sed 's/\(^.\)/"\1/;s/ /","/g;s/$/"/'
