Recall that you solve for K=(products)/(reactants). Thus when Q<K, to increase Q and get the reaction to equilibrium, you would have to increase the numerator(products) and decrease the denominator(reactants). That is why more products are formed. The same can be said for when Q>K, to decrease Q and get the reaction to equilibrium, you would have to decrease the products and increase the reactants, forming more reactants.
