Do you like "Bernina's Big Book of Quilting"?

I am pretty new to my Bernina 770qe, so I was wondering if you think Bernina's Big Book of Quilting is really helping you get the most out of quilting on your Bernina. Is it with the $80?

Thanks!

Yes it is- I forgot to mention the 16" square block in the center of the smaller pieces. You've got the experience to figure out the pattern, even though I left out a piece!
