The QDF format is one of the data formats that Quicken has used over the
years.  It is proprietary and sufficiently encrypted to be impossible to
read with other programs.  Before you abandon Quicken you need to use it to
open your file and export your data to QIF format which GnuCash can
import.  Depending on how much data you have we usually suggest exporting
one account at a time.  Good Luck.

My Quicken files are stored in .QDF format, not .QIF. (Quicken 2017)
How can I import these? I do not wish to continue using quicken.
I only have three bank accounts and no investments. I do not need the
extras of Quicken.

One of the first things you may want to export is all of your Quicken categories that are accounts in the real world. Then export each of your accounts in Quicken into a qif file for import into GNUcash. You will need to go through each entry in the register to make sure you have none with an 'uncategorized' corresponding account (category in Quicken terms). It will be tedious but well worth the effort. Online download of transactions may not work but you can always download the data to a qfx file (webconnect file) for import into GNUcash.
