What are a co-signer's rights?

Question Details: My friend and I received a loan for furniture. I was the one in charge of paying it each month. I've been paying it by myself for the past 3 months because she has stopped paying me. Because my mom is the co-signer on the loan she thinks I will continue to make the payments anyway. I've talked to my mom and we decided that I am no longer going to pay on the loan because my portion is paid in full. With my friend being the primary on the account,can she take my furniture if I have proof that I've paid my portion? If she chooses to not continue the payments and it goes to collections,do they collect from the primary or the co-signer first? If my mom ends up having to pay it, can my mom sue her for the amount owed?
