We study a physical system for creation of quantum correlations by quantum feedback control. The system is composed of two three-level atoms, each of which interacts with one of two coupled cavities. By appropriately choosing the feedback strength, we show that an arbitrary initial state can be deterministically driven to a steady-state that has a nonzero quantum discord or entanglement. It is also found that the effect of atomic spontaneous emission on quantum correlations is suppressed efficiently by increasing the frequency detuning.
