Quasars are generally considered to be up to 10-12 billion light-years away. Despite being the brightest quasar visible from earth (and therefore the first to be discovered) EC-273 is not actually the closest to Earth. A quasar named PKS2349 is actually the closest, being around 1500 million light years away (1.5 billion) from earth.

If the Sun was 1 ft across instead of 865,000 miles, the nearest star would be about 5500 miles away.

There's no such thing as "earth's" star. The nearest star that's not the sun is Proxima Centauri, roughly 4.4 light years away.
