QtCreator fails on MacOS SDK 11.1

I have Qt5 from
I use QtCreator 4.12.82.
I have MacOS Big Sur 11.1 with XCode installed in ls
When I create a new standard project in QtCreator I get the following error:
10:35:16: Running steps for project test2... 10:35:16: Starting: "/usr/local/Cellar/qt/5.15.2/bin/qmake" /Users/joefresna/VideoImageEdit/test2/test2.pro -spec macx-g++ CONFIG+=x86_64 CONFIG+=qtquickcompiler Project WARNING: Qt has only been tested with version 10.15 of the platform SDK, you're using 11.0.

Stop. The platform SDK has been changed from version 11.0 to version 11.1. This requires a fresh build.

(Note that even if I delete the build directory I still get the warning about wiping the directory)
The QtCreator Kit points to the qt installed via brew (indicated above). I tried to change the compilers in QtCreator > Projects > Manage Kits > Kits > Compiler and I tried both GCC and Clang from /usr/bin and from XCode, without success.
When I type
xcodebuild -showsdks, I get:
iOS SDKs: iOS 14.4 -sdk iphoneos14.4 iOS Simulator SDKs: Simulator - iOS 14.4 -sdk iphonesimulator14.4 macOS SDKs: DriverKit 20.2 -sdk driverkit.macosx20.2 macOS 11.1 -sdk macosx11.1 tvOS SDKs: tvOS 14.3 -sdk appletvos14.3 tvOS Simulator SDKs: Simulator - tvOS 14.3 -sdk appletvsimulator14.3 watchOS SDKs: watchOS 7.2 -sdk watchos7.2 watchOS Simulator SDKs: Simulator - watchOS 7.2 -sdk watchsimulator7.2
Do you know how to solve this problem?
check (generally) for a hidden
.qmake.stashfile, it does not necessarily live inside your build folder, and delete that

Thank you so much! This was the solution!! There was a
.qmake.stashoutside the build folder. Deleting it has solved my issue! Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!
@joefresna Just a hint: that was exactly what was mentioned in the output: "Please wipe the build directory completely,
including any .qmake.stash and .qmake.cache files generated by qmake."
