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:

HBCU Marching Band Music

Hi everyone! I'm an arranger for marching bands; more preferably, HBCU style marching/show bands. I write stand tunes, cadences, and dance routines and post them here. If you have any requests of a song you'd like to be arranged for marching band, Ill consider it and if I do complete it, I will feature your Musescore username as an arranger next to mine and also tag the score with it. I really appreciate your time and I hope I hear from you soon!
