MakeFunctions[fname_, x_Symbol, flst_] :=
  Module[{arg, lst, patt},
    lst = flst /. x -> arg;
    patt = Pattern  @@ {arg, Blank[]};
    MapIndexed[(fname[First[#2]][patt] := #1) &, lst]]


will take a name like qq for your functions, a symbol x for 
the argument and a function list like {1,x,x^2}
It will generate qq[1], qq[2],qq[3] functions

MakeFunctions[qq, x, {1, x, x^2}]


?? qq



Hope that helps
