Tiling an inside corner?
 
I am ready to tile my tub surround. I have mosaic going on the wall with the shower head and the rest of the tub surround will be a different tile. My question is how do I but the tiles? Should I run one wall of tiles to the corner and then but the other wall close or should I leave a small gap in each corner and have them butt up against each other this way?

If it does not matter which wall should be done first? I do not need have a center point on the main wall (longest wall) as the tiles are different. Thanks and merry xmas.

Typically the back wall is set first--then the side walls---this way you are not looking straight at the cuts'

About 1/8" gap on the inside corners--knife out the grout while it's still wet --fill the corner with a color matching caulk.
