No. Some people expressed interest in accessing Q-Link with the Amiga and there were suggestions that a client be created but nothing ever came of it. Enough is now known about how Q-Link works that there are no major technical hurdles in writing an Amiga version although it would still be a huge amount of work. There doesn't seem to be much interest in Q-Link lately.
In my opinion, this is one of the many failures of Commodore. True, QLink was a separate company, but I would have done whatever it took to have made an Amiga version of the client if I had been running Commodore, including paying the salaries of the programmers at QLink who would have worked on the project.
(I also would have bought the rights to JiffyDOS and shipped it on every machine, and also stuck the GEOS core on a ROM).
QLink had that huge file library with a lot of Amiga software in it ... software which Amiga users could not access without a C-64. Pretty dumb.
