Backsplsh tile over stove

Nearing completion of a kitchen remodel and finally past the most difficult part, picking the backspplash tile.

Using subway tile with a decorative tile inset over the stove, approx 20"x20". I was planning on nailing wood strips to separate the inset tile while I set the backsplash. Thinking it through, I thought that didn't make sense, that I should set the inset pieces and border first. Once they've set, then install the subway time right to the inset.

Is that the better way to install in this configuration, inset first, then subway tile?
