Doubling up sheet rock?

Hi all, we are about to purchase our Kerdi membrane for the steam shower. We'd like to use quarter round tile on the exterior of the shower. In order to do so, we think we need an extra 1/2 inch board of dry wall on top of the wall. One idea is to put two 1/2 inch sheets of dry wall on top of the studs in order to get the depth needed to accomodate the quarter round. Does this sound okay - or any other suggestions?

This is the plan:
Studs with insulation
1/2 inch dry wall
1/2 inch dry wall
Kerdi membrane
Thin set
