Layout of 12 x 12 tiles on 30 inch wide shower area

I just bought some white marble tile from Home Depot ahead of our small (5 x 7) bathroom renovation. The back wall will be laid with 3 x 6 tiles (most likely staggered) and I got 12 x 12 square tiles for the 2 remaining walls and the floor. The two shorter walls in the tub area are 30 inches wide and the best layout I could think of was grid style using a 6 inch wide cut tile in the corner followed by two 12 inch wide tiles to the edge. I would use a white grout to blend in with the tile so the tile layout is less noticeable. Does this sound like it will look okay or can anyone suggest a better-looking idea with the tile I have? i got a great deal on the tile and would prefer to keep it, but not at the expense of it looking terrible. Thanks in advance!

I had a similar scenario in a previous house and I ended up doing a 6" in the middle of 2 12" tiles. It just made it look symmetrical and gave it an interesting look.

12x12 in the middle, with 9" pieces on the inside and outside.

Rentaltux and Bill, thanks to both of you for your ideas! They are both great but I will go with the 9-12-9 inch design as it is closest to the look I am going for. Thanks again!!! I am so relieved to get this figured out!
