Composing a String Quartet, want some feedback

So I only have a few measures of a first movement but I hope to expand this into a full 4 movement string quartet. Thing is, I find it hard to get the combination of being in sonata form and still being interesting when it gets past duets into trios and quartets. I know it should be easier because I have more freedom with a string quartet than with a piano sonata but no, I have always found piano sonatas easier to compose.

Here is my first draft. You can see that I go from a Tutti to the cello playing solo which really brings out the warm sound of the cello. I plan on having the other instruments come back one by one until I reach Tutti again. So here is the link:

Three improvisatory pieces.

These are old pieces of mine (dating from the late 80s)  which I generally play in a semi-improvisatory manner (especially the last third or so). The sheet music is essentially a "snapshot" -- a transcription of one particular performance.  

I've been struggling a bit with notating these accurately while still making them playable. For the most part, I've erred on the side of accuracy, but I think I would have great difficulty playing these well, if I didn't compose them myself.
